Nationwide curfew and the existing Covid-19 containment measures have been extended for another 30 days.
Health CS Mutahi Kagwe said that the period would ensure the majority of the Kenyan population is vaccinated.
Get vaccinated today.
This came when most Kenyans expected the government to lift the nationwide curfew, which they believe is long overdue.
Health CS Mutahi Kagwe on Monday 4th said the country is yet to hit the World Health Organisation recommended positivity rate of five percent for a consistent period of 14 days.
“The containment measures including the curfew hours of 10 pm to 4 am will remain there and this is for two reasons… number one is that we are still as far as the positivity rate is concerned we are still above the WHO recommended figures in terms of two weeks period when you have got less than 5 percent of positivity rate at a high testing level,” Health CS Kagwe said.
He further explained that “we need the 30 days and extend the time to so that we can vaccinate as many people during that period as possible.”
