President Uhuru Kenyatta has extended Covid-19 containment measures for another 60 days.
This was after a meeting with opposition leaders that was also attended by Health CS Mutahi Kagwe on Wednesday.
The measures are meant to contain the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic which by Wednesday had claimed 4,378 lives from 224,400 confirmed cases.
The containment measures include the nationwide 10pm to 4am curfew.
All physical and in-person public gatherings and meetings, including political rallies and campaign meetings for impending by elections are also suspended for a further 60 days.
Further, Uhuru directed that all other social gatherings, including weddings, funerals and all other similar events or ceremonies, shall strictly adhere to the 100-person attendance limit as prescribed.
The President said the review was occasioned by the exponential rise in infection rates across several counties, due to unrestrained gatherings and congregations, in breach of guidelines as issued by the Ministry of Health.
