Fighting Covid-19

Kenya continues to battle the COVID-19 pandemic with cases steadily rising each day with the number of confirmed cases now standing at 2,767.

The Government has locked down counties including Nairobi, Mombasa and Mandera and imposed a night-time curfew as part of containment efforts.

To fight the disease, the government rolled out mass testing in virus hot spots, borders remain shut and a ban on public gatherings continues.

On Saturday President Uhuru Kenyatta in a national address announced a raft of restriction renewals aimed at virus containment.
