He also extended the closure of hotels and restaurants for one hour from 7 PM to 8 PM.

Uhuru confirmed that the number of new cases in the country has reduced from a 13% positivity rate in June to 8% in August. He said it is possible to reduce this rate to 5%, which would allow for total reopening of the economy.

“Our positivity rate countrywide has fallen from a high of 13% in June to 8% in August. This means we have a chance of reaching a 5% positivity rate for a total reopening of our economy,” he said.

The President also extended the nationwide dusk to dawn curfew for another 30 days.
