The United States has advised its citizens against travelling to Kenya over Covid-19. An advisory published on Wednesday advised travelers to read through the State’s Covid-19 page before making international travel to Kenya.
Travelers have been cautioned that even though most businesses are operating, significant restrictions have been put on the dining and entertainment sector.
This came at a time when President Joe Biden had announced an expansion plan of the United States’ coronavirus vaccination campaign, saying 90% of all adults would be eligible for the jab by April 19.
Biden also warned that the “war against Covid-19 is far from won,” lambasting “reckless behavior we’ve seen on television over the past few weeks” that left the country on the brink of a new surge.
The Biden administration’s overall goal is to ensure 90% of adults have a vaccination site within 5 miles (8 kilometers) of where they live.
The new measures include ramping up the number of pharmacies — from 17,000 to nearly 40,000 — taking part in a federal immunization program. The government is also looking to create a dozen additional mass vaccination sites over the next three weeks.
The plan also includes $100 million (€85 million) in funding to help get the shot to vulnerable and at-risk older adults and people with disabilities.
