Health Cabinet Secretary Mutahi Kagwe on Wednesday October 13, 2021 stated that he is also tired of the new mode of operation in the country since Kenya reported the first case of Covid-19.
He appreciated the fact that Kenyans are tired with the different measures such as the nationwide curfew, set by the government to curb the spread of the pandemic.
The CS while speaking exclusively to a local radio station said that the government will soon ease some of the Coivid-19 restrictions once the country registers a positive rate.
“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.
According to the CS, Covid-19 fatality rate has dropped significantly as a result of the government’s intervention.
He further stated that Kenya has made improvements in the fight against the novel virus, stating that the country’s fatality rate is currently below the global average.
He attributed this drop to Kenyans’ adherence to Covid-19 protocols and the commitment by health workers in the fight against the virus.
