If COVID-19 plague could hit one of the Nairobi slum, then it will be game over. For instance, there is no running water in some parts of Mathare Constituency and to make the matter worse, we live in crowded places. How can one wash his/her hands and distance him/herself?

How can you self isolate while you are living in a single room as an extended family?
Only one plague and the world stood still.
