WHO releases new guidelines to govern public gatherings

The World Health Organisation (WHO) has released new guidelines to govern public gatherings as countries began reopening their economies.

According to the report, the WHO advised that gatherings should only accept guests with proven health records and that organizers must remain alert throughout the event.

The report also dictated that the functions should be held outdoors and arrivals should be staggered while the frequency of transport should be increased.

It also advised that people with Covid-19 symptoms, contacts of Covid-19 cases during their period of quarantine, or those coming from countries/areas with community transmission of Covid-19 should not attend.

WHO also advised people who have pre-existing conditions and those aged over 65 years to stay away from attending such gatherings.

This came with a backdrop an outcry over a meeting held by COTU Secretary-General Francis Atwoli at his home in Kajiado on Friday that defied Covid-19 rules provided by the state.

The same was replicated by Ford-Kenya leaders at a Nairobi Hotel in a meeting that was convened by Bungoma Governor Wycliffe Wangamati on Sunday to dismiss Party Leader Moses Wetangula from his position.
