ABSTRACT

COVID-19 in Kenya; Containment, Mitigation, Recovery, Reopening   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Executive Summary: "This report presents considerations for containment, mitigation, recovery and reopening (CMRR) to ensure a seamless, organized and sustainable exit from the coronavirus pandemic in Kenya. The proposals for a systematic and organized exit, will hopefully lead to sustainable recovery and reopening in the public health, security and governance, economy, education and political sectors. Section A describes the problem and challenge of the coronavirus pandemic, the COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] phases and current status in the country. It also describes, and analyzes Kenya's COVID-19 status vis-a-vis other countries in the region and the rest of the world with regard to spread, trends and testing. [...] Section B describes and recommends that systematic plan of action detailing sectors, structures, processes and frameworks should be developed to ensure seamless and organized containment, mitigation, recovery and re-opening. [...] Overall, this report cautions that it is too early to undertake a full reopening, or a comprehensive plan of action because of uncertainty about the extent of the COVID-19 transmission based on the actual figures given by the Ministry of Health."
