(KDRTV) – Health CS Mutahi Kagwe has now warned that Kenyans should prepare for one of the worst situations that the country has faced in recent times.

While addressing journalists from Afya House on Tuesday, the CS said that all the measures that have been taken by the government to fight COVID-19 may not be enough to contain the virus.

“We must prepare ourselves to face an insurmountable situation…We are akin to a boat that is sailing towards a massive storm and we must brace ourselves and be ready mentally to face a situation that we have not faced before,” he said.

Kenya has now confirmed 172 cases of the dreaded COVID-19 virus. Despite these huge numbers, there was a ray of hope after three more people tested negative for the virus.

Kagwe CS asked Kenyans to bear with the inconveniences caused by the cessation of four counties.

On Monday, President Uhuru Kenyatta restricted travel in and out of Nairobi Metropolitan region. Three coastal counties; Mombasa, Kilifi and Kwale have also been affected.’

The CS justified this move after two cases of COVID-19 were confirmed in Mandera County on Tuesday,

“The two reported cases in Mandera had traveled from Mombasa. That explains why a decision was taken by the President to close some of the areas we feel people moving into and out of are causing further spread of the virus,” he explained.
