New Hope of Reopening The Zoned Areas As Covid-19 Infections Go Down

There might be a ray of hope at the end of the tunnel after a slight drop in the covid-19 infections. If this trend continues for the next 14 days, then the President might review the containment measures put in place to curb the spread of Covid-19. Among them was the cessation of movement into and out of 5 counties which include Nairobi.

Yesterday 486 people tested positive for the virus with 20 succumbing to it. This number of new infections is slightly lower number compared to the previous day's when large numbers of covid-19 cases were being reported in the country. The infection rate as at yesterday was 16%. Residents in the zoned counties which were put under lockdown have a reason to smile if the cases continue dropping. 

Most Kenyans are grappling with falling businesses. They say that they have made losses and their other activities stalled due to the virus.

President Uhuru Kenyatta said that the country will only review the rules if the infection rate reduces and experts advise him to unlock the counties. 

Analysts now say that there might be a revision of the measures after a significant drop in the number of covid-19 cases being reported in the country.

This might be big relief to Kenyans who have had difficult time due to the constraints impounded by the cessation of movement into and out of the zoned areas.
