Hey! I hope you are well.

Several countries across the world have now closed their borders following COVID-19. Kenya is one such country. No more inbound or outbound flights until further notice.

Therefore, if you are in a foreign country, it simply means you are stuck there unless advised otherwise. This is really very confusing time in our lives. I share my experience here-

Hi Patience,

How are you and your loved ones doing? Are you glad that you decided to stay in the UK, or are you wishing that you had gone? I hope everyone is safe and well.

It is safe to minimize the traffic between countries to reduce the chances of spreading the virus. We better stay home if possible.

Keep safe! May God bless you!

Hello Patience,
This is so right. I fall into the locked out category. A lot has changed. Hope you and your family are keeping safe

Hi patience I understand your worry of being locked down in a foreign land. What you should be concerned about right now is being safe where ever you are look at it positively in the sense that GOD probably Quarantined you in a place where COVID 19 prevalence is lower than your own country and therefore he is preserving you against eminent danger.
Stay safe sis
