The Health Cabinet Secretary Mutahi Kagwe has said that burials are the spreading grounds for the COVID-19 virus.

Mutahi said since the government announced the cessation of public change has been realized and the drawback is actually funerals.

“Our problem actually continues to be funerals. Funerals are where people are still gathering in large numbers and it is important for us not to do that,” said Kagwe.

The CS intimated that if the spread of COVID-19 comes down, the government could release the economy and people would resume their normal activities.

"If it comes down, we will be able to release the economy and people can go to funerals and so on because we will have contained the virus and once we contain it; then people will be free to do what they normally do in their lives," he added.

He added that until such a time comes, Kenyans need to be vigilant.
