Kenya, like Italy and many other countries in the world, is also moving to order a lockdown of the regions, which here are called Counties.
The demand, rather pressing according to the national media, has come to President Uhuru Kenyatta's table from the Council of Governors of the Counties themselves, who fear an increase in contagion with movements during the festivities. In particular, the finger is being pointed at the transfer of people from major urban to rural areas, to reunite with their families in their native villages.
Despite the warnings of recent days from Health Minister Mutahi Kagwe and his colleges of Transport and Trade, it seems that many, too many citizens have already booked buses, trains and even hotels on the coast to spend their Christmas holidays elsewhere.
This is seen as a great danger for the country, as the number of asymptomatic people is very high, according to experts' estimates. The percentage is still above 10% but the swabs performed are too few, according to Kenya Medical Research Center calculations there could be between 4 and 5 million positives at Covid-19 in Kenya, 90% of which are asymptomatic.
So, if Kenyatta accepts the closure requests, movement restrictions in and out of the major cities that are active Covid-19 hotbeds are expected within two weeks. The counties most prone to new infections are currently Nairobi, Mombasa, Kiambu, Nakuru, Kajiado, Uasin Gishu, Busia, Machakos, Kisumu and Kilifi.
The President's decision, according to the Daily Nation newspaper, will mainly depend on the report of the National Emergency Response Committee (NERC), which will meet on Monday to decide on the main health issues facing the country.
