    The advisory further noted that the police are willing, but often lack the capability to respond effectively to serious criminal incidents and terrorist attacks.

    “Due to terrorism concerns, U.S. government personnel are prohibited from traveling to the Kenya-Somalia border counties and some coastal areas,” added the statement.

    This comes as the third wave of the deadly virus continues to wreck havoc across the country with most ICU beds occupied and hospitals recording severe shortage of oxygen.

    So far, the country has recorded more than 139,000 positive cases and over 2,200 deaths.
