Kenya: COVID-19

Kenya's national executive proposed an economic stimulus package of KES 53.7 billion (USD 503 million) on 23 May that will be channelled towards vulnerable families and businesses affected by COVID-19. The economic impact of COVID-19 has started to manifest in the country as key industries such as tourism, agriculture, construction, real estate and transport cut back their operations following a slump in demand and lockdown-related restrictions. The national government has proposed plans to hire 5,000 health workers for a period of one year to reduce pressure on existing healthcare personnel as well as spend KES1.7 billion (USD 15 million) on expanding the number of beds in public hospitals.
