Abstract

Positive cases of COVID-19 in Nairobi account for over half of Kenya’s total, but in the capital hospitals are recording reduced patient numbers. Duncan Nyagah looks into the effects of curfews, media fear mongering and the threat of high hospitalisation costs to explain these figures, and the wider implications for citizens’ health.
