Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria has called on Kenyans to take the coronavirus disease seriously after testing positive.

“I really hope that beyond all the debate around Covid-19, all and sundry will not forget that coronavirus is real,” he said.

He said that one learns to focus more on the virus and the front line workers.

“…and less on side shows. We shall overcome Covid-19,” he added.

Earlier, Health Director General Patrick Amoth said the curve has shown proof of early reduction of new confirmed Covid-19 cases.

On the state of positive cases reported in the country, Amoth said that it is true that the positivity rate for Covid-19 has declined.

Moses Kuria 2“But all the preventive and surveillance measures are supposed to continually be enhanced to sustain the gains made,” he said.

He added that strict adherence to the curfew is one of the measures which has yielded great results and led to reduced transmission of the virus.
