Tit for Tat as Kenya, U.S. Issue Travel Advisories Over Covid-19

Kenyan citizens have been asked to reconsider all travel to the United States due to the unchecked spread of Covid-19, while those already in the U.S. have also been asked to exercise increased caution due to crime, terrorism, gang violence, extra-judicial executions and racial attacks. This comes after the U.S. raised the levels of its advisories to its citizens on travel to Kenya and other East African countries, partly due to concerns about the spread of the coronavirus. The U.S. currently has over 5 million cases and over 161,000 deaths, while 26,000 people in Kenya are infected and over 400 people have died.
