The surge of COVID-19 has led the governments across East Africa to put stringent measures to curb its spread. As of Friday March 27, 2020, Uganda had recorded 18 cases of patients who tested positive with COVID-19, Kenya recorded 29 cases while Tanzania has 13 cases and Rwanda with 50 cases.
With the coronavirus spreading fast, the East African Community (EAC) Secretariat continue to intensify efforts by deploying mobile laboratories and testing kits as respective regional ministers for health deliberate on other ways in controlling and reducing the spread.
Some of the measures that have been undertaken by countries include the closures of all schools, religious institutions and all social gatherings. Kenya has gone further to announce a night curfew starting Friday, March 27th.
Early this week, it was reported that the Kenya-Uganda border at Busia and Malaba borders were closed to human traffic for one month over coronavirus fears, where only heavy commercial vehicles with a driver and turn-boy would be allowed to cross into either countries. Similar restrictions are also applied to the Kenya-Tanzania border at Namanga.
Tanzania, Kenya, Rwanda, Uganda, South Sudan and Burundi have suspended international flights, with Burundi going the extra mile by suspending even domestic flights.
As we continue to receive advise from medical professionals and the Ministries of health on personal preventative measures in controlling the spread of covid-19, we should also be alert of your surroundings where cases of crimes of opportunity may arise.
