This is Why We Should Not Expect the Country to Open Soon

During his last address about two weeks ago, President Uhuru Kenyatta ordered for a partial lockdown of five counties which included: Nairobi County, Machakos County, Kiambu, Kajiado and Nakuru county. He also revised the curfew hours in this counties beginning from 8pm to 4 am in order to curb the spread of COVID 19, in these counties as a result of a greater surge of this disease.

However for the past two weeks there's been no great change in the number of active cases being confirmed with the positivity rate still standing high. This is a clear indication that the curve is far yet to be reached and therefore, any plans to open up this counties may still be miles away. As of yesterday Monday, a total of 486 people tested positive for the disease from a sample size of 2,989. The positivity rate was at 16.3 percent, with the number of deaths being 20.

This is still a clear indication that we not out of the woods yet, and much effort is needed from both the people and the government in order to curb the spread of this fast spreading disease. Therefore if we want our country to be opened sooner and continue with the nostalgic normal old ways, we should keep our guard and play our role.
