Here's How COVID-19 Is Impacting Kenya

Many Kenyans have heeded the call for social distancing, with companies allowing employees to work from home as far as possible. Kenyan traders importing second-hand clothes from Europe are feeling the pinch as customers fear contamination. Cash from banks will now be quarantined for at least one week, to assist in stopping the spread of the virus which has killed almost 8,000 people worldwide.
