The world is in a lockdown over the Coronavirus pandemic. It’s easy to realize people’s different characters judging by the way they are handling the situation. Here are the characters depicted by different Kenyans:
These are Kenyans who have heightened fear of contracting the virus. They are taking extreme measures which are absurd. From avoiding buying bread to locking doors to avoid anyone in the house here are a few. As much as the virus is deadly, some people are taking absurd measures to keep it at bay.
2. Don’t care
Kenya have hard enough of hardships that most of them careless about the Coronavirus. It’s evident in the way CS for Health, Mutahi Kagwe keeps pleading with them to observe hygiene and social distancing. Majority of the poor Kenyans are not bothered with the virus and can be heard wondering why they should keep washing their hands as if they are expected to eat.
Ignorance is worse than a don’t care attitude. There are a few characters who have no idea of how adverse Coronavirus is. They are unbothered with this menace. They hold on to God’s protection and take no precaution to protect themselves from the virus. They are the same people that are breaking every government’s directive aimed at controlling the pandemic.
These are the Kenyans that are pre-medics. They have every detail of what Coronavirus entails. They have read their books well. They are deep researchers. The government could use them to educate the public about the disease.
