Coast counties, reason to reopen

Yesterday 126 more cases in Kenya, 4 death

07-06-2020 by redazione

In the aftermath of President Uhuru Kenyatta's speech to the Nation, in which he announced the extension of the most important restrictions to contain the Covid-19 pandemic, with some small concessions (curfew time restrictions), the good news comes from the coastal counties of Kilifi and Kwale, which from today reopen the loco borders accepting from the outside the other Kenyans from the already open counties, while the connections with Mombasa and Nairobi remain blocked.
The President himself explained why: Kilifi and Kwale are not experiencing any cases of internal spread, their closure confirmed that Covid-19 is not present and does not spread in those regions, unlike what happens in the two counties of the most important and populous cities and in Mandera, on the border with Somalia (whose reopening would also mean having many uncontrolled transits of Somali citizens in Kenya or leaving the refugee camp of Dadaab).
On Saturday, when the country recorded 126 positive cases, 51 healings and 4 deaths, bringing the total number of active cases to 1823, for the two coastal areas that have tourist resorts such as Malindi, Watamu on one side and Diani on the other, the reopening may also mean some arrival of local holidaymakers from northern towns such as Nakuru, Machakos, Kisumu and the possibility of reopening the airport.
