President Uhuru Kenyatta expresses optimism in the war against COVID-19 as one patient recovers

President Uhuru Kenyatta, in his state of the nation address, expressed optimism in the war against the novel coronavirus pandemic. 

Uhuru stated that the confirmed cases of COVID-19 had risen by 3 raising the total number to 28. One patient has fully recovered from the virus. 

The President ordered the national treasury to grant tax relief to Kenyans earning a gross salary of Kshs.24,000 and below. 

Senior government officials will earn less to spare funds that will assist the government in fighting the scourge of COVID-19. Uhuru urged other Kenyans to voluntarily have their salaries reduced.

The President and his deputy will have their salaries reduced by 80%, Cabinet Secretaries and Chief Administrative Secretaries salaries will be reduced by 30% and Permanent Secretaries salaries will be reduced by 20%.

In the Wednesday briefing,  the President imposed a daily curfew from 7pm to 5am, effective from March 27.
