Date: Jun 1, 2020

Kenya's President Uhuru Kenyatta has expressed concern over rising cases of coronavirus in the East African nation.

In an interview aired by local broadcaster NTV, he said experts are predicting Kenya's peak would be in August September and called for individual responsibility in battling the pandemic

The country has been reporting hundreds of new cases everyday as it scales up its testing capacity. The total number of confirmed cases stand at 1,962 including 64 deaths.

President Kenyatta said the number of infections are low because a majority of Kenyans are following safety measures.

The president lauded health care workers for their response to the pandemic.

The country has been on a nationwide dusk-to-dawn curfew for more than two months. Travel in and out of the capital, Nairobi, and three other coastal counties with high number of cases is restricted.
