Coronavirus is fast spreading in the country with latest figures hitting 110 as at Thursday.
Health Cabinet Secretary Mutahi Kagwe projected that this numbers could grow to thousands of figures by mid-April, with the current infections said to be tested from those in quarantine and isolation.
Just as president Uhuru Kenyatta said that the fight against COVID-19 is a collective responsibility, Kenyans can play their part, complying to the set measures, in ensuring that government efforts to contain the virus are met.
If citizens ignore and leave the responsibility to the government, all efforts to combat COVID-19 will be suppressed. The situation may turn to be worse as CS Mutahi warns, Kenya should prepare for stiffer measures
The situation as much as difficult as it is, they say an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Everybody is feeling the pinch of coronavirus. Being ignorant of the directive measures will not help us. Circulating wrong information about COVID-19 to get people into panic and trivializing it won’t help fight the pandemic.
We should join hands together with the government and ministry of health in fighting coronavirus –just as the government urges, united as Kenyans, we will rise and defeat COVID-19.
CS Mutahi said Kenyans should concentrate on internalizing the measures set to curb the viral flu, by marinating social distance, staying at home –rather than spreading false information on social media.
