The CS noted that the steady rise in cases had merited a number of strict measures and extension of lockdown in some parts of the country.

"We've also continued to see a rise across the counties, therefore, in order to contain further spread of the virus the National Emergency Response Committee on Coronavirus announces and directs an extension of cessation of movement in and out of Eastleigh in Nairobi until Saturday 6th June, 2020," the CS announced.
