President Uhuru Kenyatta, through State House spokesperson Kanze Dena, has announced the reconvening of the National and County Governments Coordinating Summit slated for next week Wednesday. The summit is set to discuss the current resurgence of Covid-19 infections.
Kanze Dena maintained that the call for the summit was necessitated by the surge in number of fatalities. Kenya has now recorded the highest number of deaths in the month of October.
“The session shall consider the evolution of the disease as well as the epidemiological models on how COVID-19 may propagate within our country over the months of November and December 2020,” said Kanze.
“The session shall also review the efficacy of the containment measures in place, as well as the impact of the easing of the restrictions that were in place.”
The Head of State has also urged Kenyans not to drop their guard and to continue adhering to the health protocols and guidelines set by the Ministry of Health.
“Kenyans should continue to wear facemasks correctly while in public spaces, apply correct hand hygiene at all times, and adhere with the physical and social distancing guidelines and protocols that have been put in place to safeguard our individual and collective health and safety,” read the statement.
