Government extends cessation of movement in and out of Eastleigh and Old Town, Mombasa
The government has extended the cessation of movement in and out of Eastleigh and Mombasa’s Old Town until June 6.
The extension was announced by the Cabinet Secretary for Health Mutahi Kagwe on Wednesday and said the move is keen to the reduction of the spread of the virus in the two areas.
These two areas have since been noted to be hotspots for the coronavirus in the country.
However, the CS further announced 66 more coronavirus cases in Kenya that had been confirmed, raising the total tally to 1,029.
Kagwe also reiterated that restaurants and Mosques in the two regions will remain closed during the period.
The developments comes hardly a week after President Uhuru Kenyatta extended the dusk to dawn curfew and at the same time, extended the cessation of movement in and out of the Nairobi Metropolitan area, Kilifi, Kwale and Mombasa Counties.
