The government might reconsider opening up the country after the World Health Organization(WHO) announced that the corona virus might be endemic meaning it may never go away anytime soon.
Cabinet Administrative Secretary Dr. Mercy Mwangangi says that Kenyans might be forced to learn how to live with corona virus just as they did with HIV/AIDS.
She said that the government is working on plans to see how the country will move forward while at the same time trying to combat the virus.
