Colleges And Universities Should Remain Closed And Lockdown Imposed In The Whole Nation [Opinion]

Reports from the ministry of health are still showing that the rate of infection is still high and this may require more measures and policies that will help the country curb the virus.

Today, the country has recorded 834 new cases with 8498 total sample that was tested. The sad news remain in the hearts of millions of kenyans as again the ministry of health reported 23 deaths. The positivity rate stands at 9.8% which the cabinet Secretary Mutahi Kagwe referred to it as a decrease compared to what was recorded on Tuesday.

Even the CS has considered this decrease in the positivity rate, but still as a country we still have a long journey to go. Putting in consideration what the World Health Organisation demands, then the country is actually much far.

The organisation expects that for the nation to resume its normality, it should be at a positivity rate of 5% or below. Checking at where we are now, this requires much to be done from both the government and the citizens. Therefore, there is no way colleges and universities can be reopened with this infection curve. It is therefore, my own opinion that higher learning institutions should remain closed until the curve is flattened while lockdown be implemented once more in tje whole Nation in order to curb this deadly virus.

We seen how perfect lockdowns and curfews have done a great job in the five counties and if the President will implement in the whole country then kenyans should be sure of ending the pandemic soon.
