The Covid 19 State in the country is recently seen to be lower than before, quite promising. The positivity rate is decreasing day by day. This has been good news to Kenyans as they hope that soon things will be more okay than they are right now. That people will get back to their normal businesses as schools, bars, restaurants and even churches might be re-opened.
However in citizen TV tweets, according to different experts and doctor's, the positivity rate of the Covid 19 state is not as low as quoted by the government. It is still very high. They argued that the Covid 19 testing in Kenya is mostly done among those near places with testing facilities and money to pay for it. Prof Joachim Osur, AMREF Health Technical African Director noted that, since the strategy changed from free testing to testing for pay and from contact tracing to those appearing on the health facilities, it has been difficult for them to get the correct statistics. Also, most of those who lives in rural areas are usually not tested, and with this it can not be concluded that none of them have the virus. Hence the everyday results being provided by the ministry of health in conjunction with the government is not a community result, rather it is only a hospital results.
Therefore for the country to be sure of her current Covid 19 State, the government should find a way of ensuring that the samples being taken everyday should constitute even the vulnerable Kenyans. They should change a strategy to ensure all citizens from different Kenyan regions are being tested.
Kenyans should therefore not start counting their chicks before they are hatched. We still have a huge battle ahead of us, let us continue observing covid protocols. Leave us with your thoughts
