With seven confirmed cases of the coronavirus in Kenya, everyone is on high alert. This pandemic has infected more than 300,000 people and killed more than 13,000 people around the world. It has also led to a complete shutdown of businesses, entertainment spots and other non-essential things as people practice social distancing and try to contain the spread of coronavirus. Here in Kenya, coronavirus screening centers and containment areas have even been set aside, and here’s where you can find them.
