One of the ways to fight the COVID-19 pandemic is true (through) carrying out tests.

When the COVID-19 pandemic hit Kenya, so many sectors were affected. Businesses came to a halt. People lost their jobs and the government experienced a drop in revenue. Fear took over all the faces that you could meet on the streets.

The Ministry of Health issued guidelines for Kenyans to follow in an attempt to reduce the spread of the virus. Among the guidelines were for Kenyans to put on facemasks at all times they are in public, wash their hands with running water and soap, sanitize their hands from time to time, maintain social distance, and avoid crowded places.

One of the ways to fight the COVID-19 pandemic is true (through) carrying out tests. It is through tests that the Ministry of Health will be able to manage those who will be found (found) with the virus and to protect others from being infected.
