Mombasa, 08 April, 2022 / 9:15 pm (ACI Africa).
Catholic Bishops in Kenya have called on the people of God in the East African country to maintain the fight against COVID-19 even after the country’s government announced the easing of the use of face masks in open places.
On March 11, Kenya’s minister of health announced the easing of COVID-19 restrictions that had been put in place to contain the spread of the virus.
Also eased were restrictions that had been put in place to regulate coverage of sporting activities, quarantine, and isolation of confirmed COVID-19 cases, and conduct in transport operations.
In their Wednesday, April 6 statement, members of the Kenya Conference of Catholic Bishops (KCCB), however, urged everyone to be on guard, noting that the virus still roams around.
“We still acknowledge and warn that the COVID-19 pandemic is not yet over. We are still exposed and so we should not lower our guards,” Catholic Bishops in Kenya said in their collective statement signed by KCCB Chairman, Archbishop Martin Kivuva Musonde.
