Kenya President Relaxes Restrictions on Interstate Travel Amid COVID-19 Outbreak

By VOA News July 07, 2020

Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta's order allowing travel in and out of Nairobi, Mombasa and Mandera counties went into effect early Tuesday morning.

Kenyatta said, the relaxing of travel restrictions should not be taken lightly, and people should avoid reckless behavior.

Kenyatta also announced the resumption of international flights beginning August 1, as the country gradually reopens.

Kenya's leader extended the nationwide 9 pm to 4 am curfew 30 days, with a warning if the rate of the outbreak worsens, Kenya may return to more stringent lockdown restrictions.

Kenya has recorded more than 8,000 coronavirus cases and 164 deaths.
