SUMMARY

“This is a new normal and we will face challenges we have not faced before.

“Let us not vent out our anger on family members,” said Kagwe.

Health CS Mutahi Kagwe has urged Kenyans to handle stress levels responsibly and to avoid domestic violence.

Speaking during a COVID-19 update on Wednesday, the CS said there was an increase in the number of cases of domestic violence as a result of the inconveniences caused by Coronavirus and called upon the clergy and other professionals to offer guidance and counselling.

“This is a new normal and we will face challenges we have not faced before.

“Let us not vent out our anger on family members,” said Kagwe.

This comes as the country announced that nine more people had tested positive for Coronavirus, bringing the number to 225.

All nine cases are Kenyan nationals and none of them has a history of travel.

Further, they were not in quarantine centres and the CS reiterated that the country is not safe yet despite the low numbers recorded.

“We are not out of danger. Even the countries that have been hit hard by the virus recorded numbers similar to ours before the situation got worse.

“We must continue to take the necessary precautions,” said Kagwe.

Out of the nine new cases, five are from Nairobi and four are from Mombasa
