With the rise of CoronaVirus cases in the country, Daniel Maithya has urged the government of Kenya to set aside isolation homes for people aged 70 and above in all the 47 counties to ensure 100 percent protection of our aged population.

Older people have a wealth of skills and experiences; they have lived through situations others cannot even imagine. We need them in the society, they are wealth we can’t afford to lose.

If you love your parents and grandparents, just stay away while you’ve got the CoronaVirus symptoms. Older adults and people who have severe chronic medical conditions like heart, lung, or kidney disease at higher risk for more serious COVID-19.

As people age, their immune systems change, making it harder for their body to fight off diseases and infection, and because many older adults are also more likely to have underlying health conditions that make it harder to cope with and recover from.

With people travelling from cities to rural areas of Kenya, often by public transport, community infections could happen any time.

I would love to appreciate President Uhuru Kenyatta for the bold steps he has taken to help protect hardworking Kenyans who now can’t go about their normal duties due to the CoronaVirus pandemic.

I urge fellow Kenyans to adhere to social distancing protocols and other directives meant to fight the spread of the novel coronavirus disease in the country.
