Alcohol ban in Kenya is to avoid sociality

CS Kagwe: "Don't make private parties"

29-07-2020 by redazione

The Kenyan people love to socialize, get together and possibly party, forgetting the hardships of everyday life. Drinking alcohol in Kenya leads to excessive socialization at a time when it is necessary to observe social distances and avoid contact with others as much as possible.
The risk, if we do not understand it, is to find ourselves like another friendly and social people like the Brazilians of the "toda joja toda beleza" with thousands of deaths on the streets.
This is the reason that led President Kenyatta to accept the demands of Health Minister Mutahi Kagwe who, in the press conference Covid-19, reiterated the reasons for the decision.
"You have to understand why we have prevented you from matching the sausages ordered at the restaurant with a couple of bottles - said Kagwe during the daily briefing - what would not be desirable is for citizens to adopt a Plan B by finding themselves at private parties or by bringing drinks to hidden places where many people can eat them".
Get drunk, if you want, but on your own and at home, in short.
But if possible, take advantage of this bad time to clean up a little blood and liver, since alcohol-related diseases, such as diabetes and hypertension, are one of the main causes of death related to the Coronavirus.
In the Covid-19 bulletin of Tuesday, July 28, 14 deaths stand out, the second highest number ever in just 24 hours, bringing the total number of patients who lost their lives from positive to 299.
The cases detected on more than 4800 swabs were 606, of which three quarters in Nairobi with a rate of infection per test exceeding 12 percent.
And all the rest is a boredom of official numbers and data and related totals to update, which we gladly avoid exposure to, limiting ourselves to the coastal data: only 7 cases detected and all in Mombasa.
