Coronavirus positive cases in Kenya have risen to 38. Confirming the new cases, CS Health Mutahi Kagwe said that 7 more cases of positive cases were reported on Saturday March 28, 2020.

He reiterated his stance that Kenyans should observe social distancing by avoiding close contact, unnecessary movements, hugs and handshakes.

Kenya under curfew

CS Kagwe said that Kenya is still under curfew.

The Ministry of Health’s clarion call during this coronavirus era is 65959.

Therefore, Kenyans should call their kin and friends at 6:59:59 P.M. to confirm whether they have arrived at home.

He further appealed to employers to release employees in time so that they are able to beat the 7.00 P.M. curfew deadline in Kenya.

Besides, where possible, employers can scatter the work schedule to avoid the mad rush that was evident yesterday in some parts of the country.

Nairobi Lockdown

When asked about the possibilities of Nairobi City being placed under lockdown, CS Kagwe said that Kenyans should observe the curfew deadline before jumping into a lockdown.

The CS also defined the term lockdown to mean “Nairobi residents not leaving their houses at any given time,” a scenario which the Kenyan Government is working hard to avoid.

He explained the rationale behind the delayed lockdown saying that most Kenyans survive from hand to mouth. Therefore, if Kenya is put on a lockdown many Kenyans will starve since they survive from hand to mouth.

Forced or Mandatory Quarantine?

CS Kagwe drew a thin line between a forced and a mandatory quarantine.

He said that Kenyans should not fear being put under mandatory quarantine. They only need to comply and co-operate with the medics and security personnel trained to deal with coronavirus pandemic.

He said that mandatory does not mean that one is being forced into quarantine.

“Kenyans should view mandatory quarantine as a golden opportunity to protect themselves and others from coronavirus.”
