Covid-19 Curve Begins To Flatten As Kenya Utilises IMF Loans

Records of covid-19 cases in Kenya have shown a decreasing trend over the last few days. This shows a positive step ahead for kenya in the fight against the third wave of covid-19. The current positivity rate has decreased from a worrying 20 percent to 13 percent. Several counties were put under lockdown, schools closed and curfew hours were increased among other strict measures by the presidential directive.

The measures that the government put in place have yielded fruits and the minister of Education George Magoha has hinted that there's an expected return to normalcy. In his address to the press Magoha mentioned that the school calendar will not be altered anymore and will resume on May since the Kenyan covid-19 curve appears to flatten in the coming days. Despite this positive trend, the future of the imposed measures is still not predictable. Kenyans are still advised to stick to the MOH guidelines.

The flattening curve can also be attributed to the loans that the government has utilized well in this fight. The loans have helped in bolstering health care systems in the country. It's therefore worth noting that loans borrowed by Kenyan government was all in goodwill. Though Kenyans had responded negatively by signing a petition to have the loans from IMF revoked, it's proving to be actually necessary for Kenya to have them.
