Temporary closures in disease-infected counties were lifted as well as curfews were extended.

The Head of State further urged netizens to be vigilant and to fulfill their individual responsibility to avoid conflict.

“In this school-opening period, let us be the honorable citizens and patriots of our land. Nobody enjoys the situation we are in. We are not happy to put Kenyans in a difficult time. But if we cannot control the disease because of our selfishness, then we will come back and save lives. We will have to protect life and the economy. If we work together as Kenyans we will be able to move on with our normal lives, ”Uhuru said.
