Bars, Clubs Shut Down as 8 More Coronavirus Cases Confirmed by Kenyans247(1): Sun 22, March, 2020 07:55pm
The government on Sunday, March 22 ordered the closure of all bars and clubs in the country effective midnight to curb the spread of the Coronavirus disease (Covid-19) in Kenya.

Health Cabinet Secretary Mutahi Kagwe made the announcement following the confirmation of eight more cases of the virus in the country.

Restaurants and eateries were also affected as they were directed to only serve takeaway orders.

The National Police Service (NPS) is expected to play a key role in enforcing the directives in the coming week.Kagwe was accompanied to the press conference by Principal Secretary, State Department Of Interior, Karanja Kibicho and Inspector General of Police Hillary Mutyambai who echoed his sentiments.


Kagwe observed that Kenyans seemed not to be taking seriously the directives issued by the state on precautionary measures meant to contain the pandemic.

"We have noticed that majority of our people have continued to ignore our measures, continuing as if it is business as usual. We must treat this matter with the seriousness it deserves.

"In the coming week, you will observe enforcement measures that the government will be taking. Kenyans, Corona is not a joke! Stay at home!" the cabinet secretary warned.

The total number of confirmed cases in the country rose to fifteen following the announcement; with five Kenyans, two French nationals and one Mexican among the eight new patients.

"All international flights suspended effective Wednesday 25, at midnight," he announced.
