2021 marks the third wave of Covid 19 disease. There has been an increase in the number of people infected with the pandemic. Measures were introduced by the government to help curb the disease. Juja is not an exception. Total measures have been put in place to stop the spread of the virus during the by-elections that will be happening there.
The officials in charge expressed their seriousness of the matter by banning all political rallies and meetings. They warned political aspirants from trying to get public support by gathering people around. They also warned them against using caravans to go get in touch with their supporters.
Most politicians took this kindly and decided to follow the protocols given. They agreed that the virus was on the rise and that despite there being an election, guidelines by the ministry of health had to be followed.
Polical gatherings usually act as the fastest means to spread the virus. We should all pay attention and remember to put on a mask.
