COVID-19 Among Kenyans: Lessons To Pick From Animals To Survive

Public Holidays kenyans COVID

Painfully, Kenyans are yet to come into reality with the sad reality that all our lives are in grave danger following the coronavirus outbreak that will not only drain our pockets but also those of the government.

According to Doctor Githinji, MBS, Global CEO Amref Health Africa, Co-Chair UHC2030, this coronavirus pandemic is not a short term social disruption as it is going to take months our lives could go back to normal to the extent of starting social gatherings.

“May and June are likely to be the pick with thousands of infected cases in Kenya so take it slow,” Dr. Githinji urges Kenyans.

For those that live in Kenyan estate apartments, it is obvious that more than 50 percent are not seeing the danger posed by the spread of coronavirus as you are likely to spot children handled together in groups of up to ten watching video games from one gadget as their parents shut themselves inside the homes.

By now the Health CS Mutahi Kagwe must have grown tired of repeating to parents that this is not a holiday, it is not a time to relax when your children play outside with the neighbor’s children oblivious of the danger lurking, it is the time to stay indoors with your children.

STAY INDOORS WITH YOUR CHILDREN UNLESS GOING OUT IS A MATTER OF LIFE AND DEATH.

“Hibernation in human terms would mean stay indoors, reduce unnecessary expenditure, conserve the little cash you have, stop capital expenditure and asset investments, support each other, “Doctor Githinji advises Kenyans.

“If you had planned to start a new project/business, rethink those plans unless they are directly responding or beneficial to the COVID-19 response,” Doctor Githinji urges Kenyans to add,” follow these steps and thank me later.

Doctor Githinji goes ahead to compare the COVID-19 outbreak to a marathon saying,” This is a marathon, brace yourselves, fellow humans.”

“It is going to be months of public health measures of physical distance with banned gatherings. Months!! My conservative guess is 4-5 months from now,” Doctor Githinji says revealing that Kenyans are indeed headed for an unavoidable crisis and with the high level of ignorance being seen from citizens, it is glim future for the country.

“Learn from animals that hibernate during harsh times. They hibernate to survive- remaining inactive, greatly slowing their metabolism and reducing their body temperature for days, weeks or even months at a time,” Doctor Githinji advises Kenyans.
