Health Principal Secretary Susan Mochache has said Kenya is was not planning to close its borders immediately due to the new Omicron COVID-19 variant believed to have originated from South Africa.

Ms. Mochache said the government was determined to ensure Kenyans operate in an environment that is not hampered by an economic depression as a result of the pandemic.

She, however, pointed out that surveillance has been stepped up in various points of entry where everyone will be screened and show proof that they have been vaccinated.

“Like all countries in the world, we have heightened our surveillance, people coming in from the affected countries will need to have adhered to the country’s COVID 19 regulations,” said Mochache.

She also encouraged those yet to be vaccinated against COVID 19, to secure themselves as they are resistant to all the variants that have been detected so far.
