Wambui Collymore, the widow of former Safaricom CEO Bob Collymore, recently gave tips on how to survive self-isolation.

Through a post on social media, Wambui stated that when her late husband was in isolation, he would keep a journal of his thoughts and feelings.

Wambui said this would be a healthy tip, especially for men, to maintain clarity of mind in the wake of the Coronavirus.

“When Bob Collymore was in isolation, he journalled throughout. Whether it was a sentence, paragraph, a page or several.

“He wrote out his thoughts, feelings and happenings. Folks; particularly my dearest men. Consider doing so to maintain clarity & purpose,” she wrote.

In recent weeks, Health CS Mutahi Kagwe has urged Kenyans to practice self-isolation in a bid to limit the spread of Coronavirus.

However, he also noted that some Kenyans have failed to observe these measures, putting themselves at risk of contracting the virus.

Giving Italy as an example, Kagwe noted that failure to observe such simple routines would have adverse effects, urging people to work from home as the country fights to contain the virus.

On Wednesday, President Uhuru Kenyatta stated that there were three new confirmed cases of the virus bringing the total to 28.

He also said that one patient had fully recovered, giving hope to the nation that progress was being made.

As part of cushioning Kenyans against the economic effects of the virus, the Head of State announced a 100% tax waiver on Kenyans earning a gross salary of Sh24,000.

Other employees will, however, benefit from a reduction in PAYE from 30 percent to 25 percent, after the president instructed Treasury Cabinet Secretary Ukur Yatani to come up with a mini-Budget that should also see the levy on corporations’ profits - corporate tax - go down by a similar margin.

“I recognise the anxiety that this pandemic has caused millions of Kenyan families, fearful of what the future may hold for them and their children, and the possibility of job losses and loss of income weighing heavily on their minds,” said President Kenyatta at State House yesterday.
