Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, Governments have acted quickly to impose travel bans, put up quarantine facilities and other preventable measures in place. The Ministry of Health and other stakeholders have intensified campaigns issuing messages across various platforms to encourage members of the general public to adopt frequent hand washing and improved personal hygiene, as measures for the fight against the Corona virus. Hand washing is therefore the first line of defense against COVID-19. The importance of safely managed water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) services as essential parts of preventing and protecting human health during the COVID-19 pandemic cannot be overemphasized. According to a WHO/UNICEF technical brief on WASH and waste management for COVID-19, frequent and proper hand hygiene is one of the most important measures that can be used to prevent infection with the COVID-19 virus.

Covid-19 shock on the economy is one of its kinds. It combines both supply and demand shocks. Previously, economic shocks have always been mostly in the supply side and specific sectors that eventually spiral to the rest of the economy. The most recent economic collapse, the Global Financial crisis of 2007–2008 was triggered by severe contraction of liquidity in global financial markets that originated in the United States as a result of the collapse of its housing market, and this threatened to destroy the international monetary system .

The supply shock reduces the economy's capacity to produce goods and services at given prices. On the other hand, a demand shock reduces consumers' ability or willingness to purchase products and services at given prices . The COVID19 shocks have affected Kenya's economy in several ways. They include contraction of the economy, productivity losses, and welfare losses.
