Dr. Aman raised concern that despite the country benefiting from the strict coronavirus containment measures, citizens had hastily relaxed their efforts to protect themselves from the pandemic after ostensibly the peaking curve
For instance, he demurred that many people have stopped wearing face mask something that can re-erupt another wave of infection
He also warned against stigma against people who have survived COVID-19.
“We have seen remarkable progress with regards to the recovery of patients… however our surveillance teams have observed that there has been some level of stigmatisation against people who have been discharged from the isolation and quarantine facilities,” said Aman.
KDRTV understands that Kenya has continued to record lower daily infection of coronavirus now for almost four consecutive weeks
This has made a section of Kenyans to believe that the coronavirus curve has flattened
