Events Get Postponed Amid Coronavirus Epidemic

18 March of 2020 by

The government of Kenya through the Ministry of Health today confirmed three more cases of coronavirus in the country, bring the total number of those affected to seven. Ever since this confirmation, and the directive from H.E President Uhuru, more and more Kenyans are taking extra precaution in order to minimize the spread of the virus.

Health experts have also given guidelines on how to prevent the spread of this virus such as avoiding contact with infected persons, avoiding handshakes, sanitizing of hands regularly using soap and water or alcohol-based sanitizer, maintaining good respiratory hygiene and observing high personal hygiene.

In light of this, the entertainment and events business has not been left behind and many event organizers have postponed their events in order to minimize chances of infection to their clients and artistes. Online ticket sales company Ticketsasa yesterday issued a statement confirming that they, in conjunction with event merchants will be putting in place various contingency measures for the listed events. Ticketsasa also stated that all customers who had purchased tickets for cancelled events will be reimbursed their funds.

A number of events have also been postponed indefinitely. Some of them include Kenya Kite Festival, Churchill Live Recording at Mow Sports Club Grounds, Queens of Jazz and Sondeka Awards among others. Other organizers such as Because You Said So April Edition, have resorted to live stream their events.

We surely hope that a lasting panacea to this viral infection threat will be found soon. In the meantime, remember to sanitize and follow the guidelines from health experts as COVID- 19 is preventable.
