Day 24 in Kenya

As of today, there are 184 confirmed cases and 7 deaths so far. Testing is still limited and is expected to become more widespread in the next few weeks as the country acquires more equipment. Once testing ramps up, there will be a more accurate count of confirmed cases. Measures put into place so far are as follows:

  • Social distancing
  • no shaking hands or hugging
  • hand washing stations
  • masks and gloves in public
  • night time curfew
  • hot spots such as Nairobi and Kilifi locked in
  • Travel upcountry discouraged

Like many countries that are super social, Kenyans are struggling with the curfews and lack of shaking hands. I think we are doing better with shaking hands but the curfew continues to be tough! I went out to the road a few minutes before curfew and there were still cars on the road!
