Health Cabinet Secretary Mutahi Kagwe has revealed that he is also growing weary of strict Covid-19 regulations such as curfew.
Kenya just like all countries across the world imposed strict containment measures in 2020 to curb the spread of Coronavirus.
Some measures such as cessation of movements, public gatherings have since been relaxed, but the government continues to extend national curfew.
Many Kenyans are sick and tired of the national curfew which has negatively impacted the economy rendering many jobless.
Health CS Mutahi Kagwe on Wednesday October 13th stated that he is also tired of the new mode of operation in the country caused by the pandemic.
Kagwe, who was speaking exclusively to a local radio station, stated that the government will soon ease some of the Covid-19 restrictions once the country registers a consistent diminution of positivity rates.
“I am tired too and I am a Kenyan and I want to get back to normal life but it will take a while to get back to what we call normal life because even after opening the economy, things like wearing of masks and social distancing will remain,” said Kagwe.
He added that;
“However, it is our intention as a government that as soon as we have consistently stayed the positivity rate that we are in now, we will be able to make significant changes.”
According to the Health CS, Kenya’s Covid-19 fatality rate has dropped significantly due to the intervention of the government.
Kagwe noted that Kenya has made commendable strides in the fight against Coronavirus, stating that the country’s fatality rate is currently below the global average.
He attributed the drop in Covid-19 cases to Kenyans adherence to protocols and the commitment of health workers in the battle against the virus.
“When you look at our statistics, obviously there is a difference and I think that difference was brought about by the dedication and commitment of our health workers but also decisions that were made at the top leadership especially by President Uhuru Kenyatta,” said Kagwe.
