In light of the resurgence of COVID-19 infections in the country, President Uhuru Kenyatta has convened an Extraordinary Session of the National and County Governments Co-ordinating Summit next Wednesday, November 4.
The session, which is the sixth since the advent of the COVID-19, is expected to deliberate on a raft of issues around the pandemic, now that the country has recorded its highest number of COVID-19 monthly fatalities in October.
The session shall also be used to consider the evolution of the disease in the country ever since the first case was confirmed back in March as well as look at the models on how COVID-19 will propagate in Kenya in the months of November and December.
When President Uhuru was easing COVID-19 restrictions in September, he said that he would not hesitate to re-introduce the tough measures if the number of COVID-19 infections would not be controlled.
Uhuru’s extraordinary meeting is also expected to reflect on the impact on the impact of easing of the restrictions that were in place.
The first in command has called upon Kenyans to continue adhering “the simple yet highly effective individual and collective measures” of controlling COVID-19.
“Kenyans should continueto wear facemasks correctly while in public spaces, apply correct hand hygiene at all times, and adhere with the physical and social distancing,” said Uhuru.
