Kenyan President to Buffer Citizens Against COVID-19 Pandemic
Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta as a way of supporting the citizens of the East African Country, has opted to buffer Kenyans against health effects of coronavirus pandemic.
He said this on March, 12, at the statehouse during his address on the state intervention to shield Kenyans against health effects of coronavirus pandemic.
Coronavirus ( covid-19) is a novel disease outbreak across the globe where over 400,000 cases of the virus have been reported.
Mr. Kenyatta urged religious leaders, political leaders, and other fellow Kenyans to pay heed to the guidance by the ministry of health on self- quarantine and social distancing.
He also stated that another fundamental way to contain the spread of the virus is through personal hygiene as well as a change in individual attitude.
The Kenyan leader encouraged the citizenry to adhere to the following precautionary measures; Wash hands regularly with soap under running water or usage of alcohol-based hands sanitizers, cover nose and mouth when coughing or sneezing with a tissue, avoid close contact with anyone with cold or flu-like symptoms.
He announced a daily curfew from the hours of 7:00 pm to 5:00 am, to be commenced on March, 27, noting that “all movements would be prohibited during these hours apart from being a medical professional, health personnel and critical service providers.”
According to the president, the government of Kenya has logically put these measures in order to mitigate the spread of the novel covid-19 pandemic in Kenya.
