The head of state while addressing Kenyans stated that the country is not yet out of the woods while advising netizens to come out in large numbers and get vaccinated.

His decision, the President said, was necessitated by a drop in Covid-19 infections recorded across different parts of the country.

Religious places will also be operational with two-thirds of their congregants allowed in.

Kenya has recorded 117 new Covid-19 cases in the last 24 hours after 6,004 samples were tested. The country’s caseload is now at 252,308.
