He added that the economy of the country will only be reopened after all the counties shall have met the necessary threshold that is required. The President also said that many counties have the elderly people and if by any chance the partial lockdown is lifted from the counties such as Nairobi and Mombasa then the other counties may really suffer a lot because many people may travel to their home counties and they may spread coronavirus.
