President Uhuru Kenyatta is likely to announce tougher Covid-19 measures on Monday July 6, 2020.

Kenyans are highly anticipating for lifting of cessation of movement into and outside the locked counties, as the current measures come to an end.

However, according to a statement issued by government spokesperson Cyrus Oguna on Sunday July 5, 2020, the government is likely to announce tougher measures.

Oguna in a statement posted on twitter said that the simplicity of the containment measures makes them very easy to ignore, and some of our people have literally abandoned them.

However, Oguna noted, if we must stop the spread of this virus, then we have no choice, but to obey them.
