Experts Urge Caution as Kenyatta Plans to Ease COVID-19 Curfew

President Uhuru Kenyatta has hinted that he may relax the curfew and containment measures in several counties that were implemented on March 2. He has also announced allocating multi-billions to the ministry of education as he indicated that schools will be reopening soon. The head of state, according to sources, seems to have been encouraged by the country's seemingly low death rate and the high numbers of infected people who do not have any symptoms.

Testing for COVID-19 is carried out at St Teresa's Girls in Eastleigh in Nairobi.
