Since the outbreak of COVID 19 pandemic in the country, many activities have been stopped and people have now adjusted to the new normal. The COVID 19 measures that have been imposed by the government include; wearing of face masks, washing of hands with soap or sanitizer and the countrywide curfew. Nairobi county has been greatly hit by the pandemic. Nairobi county is the home of people from all parts of the country. It also houses the regional and international offices such as UNEP and the UN HABITAT.
In the last 24 hours, a total of 1,049 people have tested positive for the disease out of 7,068 samples. Out of the total COVID 19 positive cases, 402 cases are from Nairobi county. Since the beginning of last month, Nairobi has been recording the highest number of COVID 19 positive cases in the country. This trend must worry the government and Kenyans at large because many people move in and out of the county on the daily basis.
