Latest Updates on Re-opening and Unlocking of Counties amid Presidential address on 14th April

His Excellency Uhuru Kenyatta is expected to give his speech on 14th April concerning the Covid-19 trend. Following the decrease in the positivity rate of Corona virus from around 22% to 14%, many Kenyans are expecting reduction in laid down guidelines to curb spread of the virus. This includes unlocking of Nakuru, Kiambu, Nairobi, Kajiado and Machakos counties which were put under lockdown in 26th March 2021 following increase in Covid infections. Hope for unlocking has been boosted since the CS for Education on 12th April confirmed reopening of schools early May as scheduled before.

Bars and Restaurants in locked counties are expected to be reopened again and curfew hours reduced. Churches also in locked counties are expected to return to normal ways as the President had said only a maximum of a hundred people should be allowed. Day-to-day activities are expected to return to normal ways but we should continue following rules and guidelines set to curb spread of Covid-19.

The decrease in Covid-19 infections doesn't mean we shouldn't follow the guidelines put aside like wearing a face mask in public, keeping a physical distance of at least 1.5m among others but we should be keen in following them in order to minimize spread of the virus and with all these we shall win together.
