"This virus doesn't look at anyone's face. It doesn't care if you have black, white or other skin and it doesn't look at your wallet. So you all have to respect the rules, the distances of at least one and a half meters from each other and wear masks. We must prepare for the worst to try to avoid it."
Wise words from President Uhuru Kenyatta, in announcing yesterday two more coronavirus deaths in Kenya, bringing the total number of deaths to 6. Among them is a Kenya Airways pilot, who made his last flight bringing home Kenyan citizens from the United States, an elderly businessman seriously ill with diabetes who returned from South Africa, a six-year-old immunodepressed child, but also the former director of the Mombasa Golf Club, 51 years old, who apparently had no previous pathologies. The other two fatal cases announced yesterday have not yet been revealed. Yesterday's 16 new cases were infected, which brings the total number of cases to 158, and as always the majority of these are based in the capital and the others are divided between the counties of Mombasa, Kwale and Kilifi. Nairobi leads the sad list with 82% of the positives, hence Kenyatta's decision to close the regional borders in Nairobi, throughout the urban and suburban area. Stop trains, planes and buses that would transport thousands of citizens out of the capital for the Easter holidays. For 21 days from yesterday no one will be able to return to their home village or take a trip out of town.
Block also the three coastal counties, as widely explained in the other article today, but from Wednesday 8 to 19.
