President Uhuru Kenyatta made a decision to impose new restrictions due to the rise of the Corona virus cases in the country.
The lockdown has affected the transport sector as thousands of Kenyans who earned their daily living as drivers, conductors and transport managers have been forced to go without pay.
Uhuru extended the ban on political public gatherings as details emerged that they are the super spreaders of the Corona virus disease.
All schools, universities and colleges were closed indefinitely with exception for the candidates so as to protect the future of the students.
Yesterday, Professor George Magoha gave Kenyans hope that schools are likely to reopen since the Covid-19 curve seems to be flattening.
According to a report by Daily nation, Experts said that they will advise the president to reduce some of the Covid-19 containment measures such as the removal of the lockdown, reduction in curfew hours and reopening of schools.
The Covid-19 cases are in the reduction trend as yesterday 486 people tested positive to the disease, from a sample size of 2,989.
The positivity rate was at 16.3%. The total confirmed positive cases stands at 146,156 and cumulative tests so far conducted are 1,564,827.
