The government has extended the Covid-19 containment measures for 30 days.
Health Cabinet Secretary Mutahi Kagwe said that the government will fully open the economy after vaccination.
He said the country is yet to hit the World Health Organisation recommended positivity rate of five per cent for a consistent period of 14 days.
“The containment measures including the curfew hours of 10 pm to 4 am will remain there and this is for two reasons… number one is that we are still as far as the positivity rate is concerned we are still above the WHO recommended figures in terms of two weeks period when you have got less than 5 per cent of positivity rate at a high testing level,” Kagwe said on Monday.
“We need the 30 days and extend the time to so that we can vaccinate as many people during that period as possible.”
The CS said the government will open the economy after vaccinations.
“…and we hope to do so during the period that we have announced. As we head for the Christmas holidays we need to ensure that as many people in this country have been vaccinated as possible,” he said.
