Updates straight from the President of Kenya

16-04-2020 by redazione

It was directly the President of the Republic of Kenya, Uhuru Kenyatta, who updated the nation to unified networks on the current state of the Covid-19 virus infection.
"In the last 24 hours we have carried out 704 swabs - announced Kenyatta - and 9 new cases of positivity and unfortunately one death have been detected. We now have 234 positive patients while there are still 53 people recovered after subsequent tests found them negative".
Kenyatta explained what has been done so far in terms of prevention and containment of the global pandemic, and appealed to the population not to take lightly this virus that has not yet expressed its dangerous potential in the country.
"Through the measures we have taken, such as curfews and the closing of borders," said the President, "we are trying to contain the virus, but it is also your responsibility to protect yourself and others from this great threat by keeping your distance, wearing masks and disinfecting yourselves.
The President announced in the coming days the start of mass testing, in areas identified as possible outbreaks and possibly also in other areas.
Kenyatta also spoke about the economic impact that this emergency is causing and the Government's efforts to ensure health services and help businesses and private citizens.
"The Coronavirus looks no one in the face - added Kenyatta - every social class, ethnicity, group and person does not feel exempt from the threat. We must all work together and feel united. I want to thank all the social entities in the country for the help they are providing and all the health workers, but also the media that are spreading the messages of prevention and social distance".
Announcing new appropriations, such as 8.5 billion shillings for the elderly and 500 million for disabled citizens, as well as other appropriations for financial support to the industrial sector.
"Our future efforts will be to defend our growth as an economic pole - said Kenyatta - we will have to rebuild a system of trade and relations with other nations that will allow us to get back on our feet soon".
Kenyatta then sent a very clear message to the country's law enforcement agencies.
"While thanking our agents who are working hard to maintain security and protect the population - warned the Kenyan President - in the same way I want to remind them that they are on duty to ensure the safety of all citizens and that those caught abusing their mandate will be intercepted and punished. But at the same time I want to stigmatise with absolute severity the actions of those citizens who turn against the work of our policemen.
