Kenya's President Uhuru Kenyatta yesterday, Tuesday 29 June, extended the country's curfew regime for another 60 days with the same lockdown hours of 10pm to 4am.
In a speech from State House in Nairobi, the President also confirmed other restrictions still in place, first and foremost the lockdown of 13 counties in the North West which will continue with their 7pm to 4am curfew.
The counties are as follows: Homa Bay, Migori, Kisumu, Siaya, Busia, Kakamega, Vihiga, Bungoma, Kisii, Nyamira, Kericho, Bomet and Trans Nzoia.
President Kenyatta also stated that with regard to religious gatherings in places of worship, for another 60 days, the rule of one-third of the capacity of the premises must be respected, with respect for the guidelines of the Interfaith Council.
The same applies to public gatherings, which are banned for a further 60 days, and funerals, for which the limit remains 100 people present at ceremonies. At the same time, the burial of loved ones must be carried out within 96 hours of their death.
All hospitals have been directed to limit the number of visitors for inpatients to one visitor per patient per day.
"All other rules, guidelines and protocols not reviewed through this Public Order will continue to apply until otherwise notified," President Kenyatta added.
Addressing the pandemic emergency, the Head of State confirmed that a PCR swab valid for no more than 96 hours prior to arrival will still be required to enter the country.
On the subject of vaccines, Kenyatta said that the government plans to vaccinate the entire adult population, some 26 million people by 2022.
"Before Christmas this year," the President said, "it is our intention to vaccinate over 10 million adults. According to our experts, as of next August, we will have developed a capacity to vaccinate 150,000 people every day."
