Close Bars And Lockdown Major Cities To Curb The Third Wave Of Covid-19 In The Country

The country is currently experiencing the third wave of Covid-19 infections since high numbers of new cases are being daily. Yesterday, the infection rate increased to 22.1% a thing has got the Ministry of Health and the Government worried.

The doctors union also gave a worrying report that health facilities are full of Covid-19 patients with Intensive Care Units getting congested.

President Uhuru Kenyatta revised the protocols and guidelines put in place to curb the spread, but it seems that those regulations he revised are not enough to keep the deadly virus in bay.

Several stakeholders of the Ministry of Health are calling out for major changes in the daily routine of Kenyans that will help regulate the shocking third wave of Covid-19.

According to Dr Loice Ombajo, locking down major cities and towns most especially Nairobi will help reduce the community spread of the disease.

Other than lockdown, there are suggestions that bars and alcohol selling joints are becoming a hub for the spread of this virus. The rule of having bars closed should be revised such that people buy take away drinks only.

The issue of church congregations, weddings and funeral ceremonies should also be controlled to avoid any chances of facing a catastrophy. The NTSA should also be strict on public transport who do not take into consideration the social distancing rule and sanitisation.

If these measures are followed and Kenyans get vaccinated, the Covid-19 scare will have been resolved.
