Journalist Larry Madowo has explained why he was forced to leave New York City where he lives and schools.
Why Larry Madowo has been forced to leave New York
In a post seen by Pulse Live, Mr Madowo stated that the rate of Coronavirus infection in the American city is 5 times faster compared to other states.
He went on to say that with this rate, it only made sense that he left for a different place, but didn't mention where.
“New York's coronavirus infection rate is 5 times higher than the rest of the country. It didn’t make sense to stay so I left,” he wrote.
Larry who is a Knight-Bagehot fellow at the University of Columbia in York made the remarks after it was announced that all 50 states in the US had reported cases of Coronavirus.
The US has so far reported 41000 COVID-19 infections with at least 541 deaths from the same.
A section of Madowo's followers advised him to stay safe while others warned him that coming to Kenya would be a bad idea.
Here are their reactions;
