On Friday, March 20, Health CS Mutahi Kagwe urge citizens to toe the line and avoid the spread of the virus.
He stated that actions taken by the Kenyan government would be guided on what had been observed in other countries.
"Trends that we have observed in other countries indicate that the number of infected persons increases dramatically following confirmation of the first case.
"The next two weeks are critical for this country. As we seek to contain the outbreak, we remain focused on emphasizing a high level of hygiene," the CS stated.
To contain the impact of the disease, Kagwe announced that the National Emergency Response Committee had resolved to have bars and all entertainment areas closed by 7:30 p.m. every day until further notice from Monday, March 23.
Additionally, he directed all supermarkets to minimise the number of shoppers at a given time.
"All supermarkets are required to limit the number of shoppers. A queue management system must be established to manage the crowds outside the supermarket and priority be given to the elderly, pregnant mothers and people living with disabilities," he stated.
