KENYA. Nairobi. The Kenyan government has reopened the Kenya/Tanzania border. The government has also given touring access to many other countries across the globe. This decision has been implemented for the first time since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic. Along with Tanzania, tourists coming from India, America, South Africa, Mexico and Spain have also been given access to visit Kenya. Surprisingly, all these countries have a high number of COVID-19 cases.

The people coming from these countries will not go through a 14-day quarantine period. However, the Kenyan government has advised its tourists to carry a medical certificate with them. This step is taken to ensure that the tourist coming to visit Kenya has not been infected by COVID-19.

There have been many disagreements between Kenya and Tanzania on their different approaches of dealing with COVID-19. The Kenyan government has always criticized Tanzania for its way of handling the pandemic. Due to this, the trading between these two nations was stopped for a definite period.

The border has been reopened now and both the countries are planning to restart their trades. However, this decision is considered a bit tricky as Tanzania has never released its statistics on the COVID-19 cases. Tanzanian President, John Magufuli, recently declared Tanzania as a COVID-19 free nation. He is even asking the citizens to stop following the guidelines provided by the WHO for the pandemic.
