The covid-19 pandemic continues to rear it's ugly head as more and more people continue to lose their loved ones to the deadly virus.
The lifting of strict containment measures imposed earlier on to curb spread can be patly blamed for the upsurge as most Kenyans are yet to embrace wearing of masks and social distancing.
Politicians also stand accused of pulling crowds whenever and opportunity presents itself.
A case in mind is the kiambaa by-election where immediately after the elections, there was an upsurge of cases.
Kenyans have been urged to take responsibility and take care of themselves while those adamant to take vaccines asked to reconsider their positions.
On Monday night, citizen tv took the campaign a notch higher when it interacted with Coffin sellers at Thika.
The sellers revealed that there is an ever increasing demand for coffins since the month of May this year.
It's unfortunate that they are having a booming business even as they shudder the possibility of them one day being carried in the same coffins.
The workshops are hives of activities as clients continue streaming in to shop for the best ones for their dead loved ones.
The story is the same with mortuaries where some sources from one morgue in Nairobi disclosed to Citizen that the situation is worsening as demand for space outstrips supply.
Hearse dealers are now forcing clients to disclose the causes of deaths because of the extra care that is required when handling Covid-19 cases.
Kenyans who reacted to the sobering story raised questions on the numbers being announced by the ministry and those stated by coffin sellers. Others though took a swipe at the coffin makers.
However, the point is that Kenyans need to be careful on natters Covid-19.Below are screenshots of the reactiobs online
