    Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta on Friday placed Nairobi and several nearby counties under a partial lockdown, and closed schools and bars in those areas, in an effort to contain the spread of Covid-19. In a national address, Kenyatta ordered "that there shall be cessation of all movement by road, rail, or air into and out of the disease-infected area... effective midnight tonight" in Nairobi and four other counties where cases are rising fast. Kenya is gripped by a deadly third wave of the pandemic but nearly three-quarters of all cases have been recorded in the capital Nairobi and the nearby counties of Kajiado, Kiambu, Machakos and Nakuru. Kenyatta said all public gatherings in those areas -- political, religious or otherwise -- were temporarily suspended, while schools were shuttered except to those doing exams or for medical students.
