Briefing: Five ideas on how to ease the impact of COVID-19 lockdowns in Kenya

Briefing: Five ideas on how to ease the impact of COVID-19 lockdowns in Kenya The New Humanitarian "NAIROBI - Africa was one of the last regions to register a confirmed coronavirus case, but COVID-19 is now spreading fast. There have so far been more than 9,400 confirmed cases in 52 countries, with no sign yet of a slow down. Governments initially responded with travel bans and flight restrictions. As coronavirus cases have climbed, most African countries have implemented social distancing measures – including lockdowns and curfews – to try and contain the secondary spread within communities. But in cities like Nairobi, two-thirds of the 4.4 million people are crammed into informal settlements that lack basic services, and entire families can live in a single room."
