Notes from a Pandemic

Remembering the start of COVID19 in Nairobi

Today marks a year since the first COVID-19 case was confirmed in Kenya. At the onset of the pandemic, ThisNairobi was able to spend time photographing different communities around the city as they mobilized resources in preparation for COVID-19’s arrival.

Though COVID-19 did hit Kenya, deaths, and infections were far lower than in other parts of the world. The city slowed, but never stopped and people found new ways to exist under unusual conditions. Through the “Notes From a Pandemic” photo-series, we hope that the world sees that the city’s ability to deal with COVID-19 was no accident. Rather it was a battle fought through hard work, dedication and mutual support.
