They say every dark cloud has a silver lining, and amidst the coronavirus pandemic, a scientific silver lining is emerging.
This in terms of predicting the patterns of waves, hence aiding in prior preparation.
In Kenya, for example, scientists are foreseeing a spike in infections in the cold season set to start towards the end of this month.
By being able to map out such a phenomenon, the government has adequate time to stock up on drugs, PPEs, treatment, and isolation facilities before this fourth wave hits.
The government also has enough time to deliberate on what policies to put in place to minimize spread, whether it means returning to the partial lockdown, closing down schools, isolating zoned areas, or, if necessary, putting the country under total lockdown.
Knowing how we Kenyans are good at procrastination, let us hope that our government takes advantage of this early enlightenment on what the near future holds seriously, and luckily, the fourth wave will pass quickly, so we can return to some form of normalcy.
