Synopsis: The Novel coronavirus came out of nowhere, causing unimaginable damage to the world. This brought destabilization in many sectors, such as health, especially in third world countries. This caught our attention and the best of us needed to come together and spread knowledge to as many people as we could. Kenya’s unpreparedness took root in the form of inefficient emergency systems and no ready resources. The immediate response was to reroute supplies and contain the virus as the country worked on acquiring more. This paper follows Kenya through the pandemic.
