President Uhuru urged the governors to firm up Covid-19 response so that their areas can be reopened. President Uhuru Kenyatta explained that the unit readiness to accommodate new infections was important since after reopening most people will travel all over the country.

Health CS Kagwe discouraged the reopening of the country without proper measures by the counties since many cases are reported daily and so far, 40 out of 47 counties are reporting Covid-19 so far.
