The pandemic has disrupted lives and businesses around the world. Its consequences have gone far beyond the spread of the disease, as restrictions and lockdown measures have caused a collapse in global economic output. Kenya’s response to the spread of the virus has been similar to those used in other countries, starting with public messages to urge strict hygiene and social distancing, followed by travel restrictions and border closures, and finally more drastic lockdown measures. The restrictions and lockdown measures have affected most of the country’s economic activities while disrupting the domestic supply of and demand for products, as well as Kenya’s labour market.
