The government has convened an emergency meeting to discuss measures to curb the spread of the Coronavirus disease (Covid-19) in Kenya.

Addressing the press at the Kenyatta National Hospital (KNH), on Sunday, March 22, Health Cabinet Secretary Mutahi Kagwe divulged that the meeting will be held at 2:30 p.m.

Kagwe added that he would address the nation on the resolution of the special committee in the country's fight against the deadly Coronavirus.

This comes as the world continues to battle the coronavirus pandemic that has caused more than 11000 deaths currently with Italy recording unprecedented number of deaths for two days running.

Speculation is rife that more governments, including Kenya could resort to a nationwide lockdown that has proved to be efficient in controllong the spread of the virus.
