Dusk to dawn curfew continues to be among the best measures in curbing spread of Covid-19 in Kenya.

This is evident in Lake and Western regions of Kenya where government tightened up restriction of movement at night.

Curfew had been revised to start from 7:00am after counties at the two regions recorded alarming cases this becoming hotspots.

However, after that today CS Kagwe annouced that these counties will no longer be on the radar after cases dropped almost to zero.

Many are celebrating the revision but there is another statement that is sort of bad news to them.

People from Kisumu, Busia, Bungoma, Homabay are known to celebrate as they send off their loved ones who have died.

This usually takes them a period of a week or more, to dance, eat and burry their kin.

But CS Kagwe maintains that people should dispose off their loved ones within a period of 72 hours if they die of Covid-19.

This means that there will be no wide morning neither huge gatherings in the burial ceremonies.

People dance around grave of their loved one before sending it to the ground.

This also sees only family members allowed to attend the ceremonies and villagers in very limited numbers.
