After Kenyans continued to pressure President Uhuru Kenyatta about the set lockdown and curfew, the head of state finally addressed the critical issue, stating that he has not shut down the entire country and that he will revisit the set guidelines once the Curve has flattened.
In his statement, Uhuru said: "This lockdown is not like the one of last year. I said, I only locked down five Counties that were recommended to Me as super-spreaders of Covid-19. The rest of the Nation is still fully operational, and I, therefore, urge Kenyans to stick to the set of Covid-19 regulations and protocols for a Month. I will thereafter review them, and open the Country when the Curve flattens to 5%."
The country now has an 18.5 percent positivity score, which is a worrying statistic. In the previous 24 hours, 948 people tested positive for the COVID-19 pandemic, with 14 people succumbing to the disease.
Nairobi county had the most COVID-19 cases with 483, followed by Kiambu and Machakos counties with 73 and 61 cases, respectively.
