The government of Kenya is calling upon Kenyans to strictly observe the Covid19 protocols.
The second wave of the Coronavirus infections might be deadly if Kenyans fail to observe the ministry of health guidelines.
The cabinet secretary for Health hon Mutahi Kagwe is Warning Of Second Wave As COVID Infections And Deaths.
Kenya is staring at the second wave of COVID-19, weeks after lifting tough restrictions that were imposed in March to tame the rising numbers.
Health Cabinet Secretary Mutahi Kagwe has said that the country was headed to tough times, signalled by the rise in new infections and a sharp rise in COVID-19 deaths.
“We are headed to tough times ahead,” he told a news conference on Sunday when he announced 685 new cases and seven deaths, “the second wave is coming judging from the increase in new infections and deaths.” The new cases were detected from 4,912 samples.
Kenya had recorded 832 fatalities and 44,881 infections by October 18.
He said it was unfortunate that Kenyans, including politicians, had dropped the guard.
“We have seen Kenyans all over walking without masks, and politicians holding huge rallies,” he said, “this is dangerous and can get us into more trouble.”
Kenya lifted tough COVID-19 restrictions last month, opening bars, schools and churches after infections cases declined but the country has recorded a sharp increase in since the beginning of October, with a daily fatality rate of at least 10 people.
