Kenya’s ambassador to the Democratic Republic of Congo Dr. George Masafu has urged Kenyans to observe the Health Ministry’s Covid-19 infection prevention directives, saying the bulk of suffering is shouldered by an individual. Speaking during a Sunday service at the St. Crispinus ACK Bungoma, Dr. Masafu said directives like wearing of masks should’ve taken seriously, “We are told tool put masks on, please, don’t asks too many questions, just put the masks on. Science tells us that if you put the mask on, I’ll not pass (the virus) to you, and you won’t pass it to me, and in the process we’ll stop the Coronavirus from spreading.”
He said the second wave of the virus may end up being more deadly than the first with cases reported in the last two weeks rising rapidly. He further warned that the consequences of infection are personal, thus calling for caution from Kenyans, “Remember, the consequences are individual, you don’t die as a group, you suffer as an individual and die as an individual.”
On his part, ACK Bungoma Diocese bishop George Mechumo said Bungoma residents and Kenyans as a whole shouldn’t push the narrative that the virus isn’t within the community. He said all directives including social distancing, wearing of masks should be adhered to, “In Bungoma we hadn’t recorded many cases some time back, but on Saturday I saw we had 21 cases,” he added.
