Kenya’s president extended a nationwide night-time curfew by 21 days and said people won’t be able to enter or exit the capital and some coastal areas for a similar period.

The East African nation has 343 confirmed cases of Covid-19, President Uhuru Kenyatta said in an emailed statement.

The government has mapped out economic sectors and activities on the basis of infection risk and decided to allow some restaurants and eateries to reopen, he said.

“We will reopen this economy, but it must be in a way that does not endanger many thousands of lives,” Kenyatta said.

The president also assented to tax law amendments designed to cushion businesses and households from the impact of the pandemic, according to a separate statement. The changes include an increase in the threshold for sales tax, a drop in income and corporation tax and lower value-added tax.
