The United States issues travel advisory to its citizens against travelling to Kenya over Covid-19.



An advisory issued on Wednesday urged travellers to read through the State's Covid-19 page before making international travel.



Officials assessed US citizens of the current strict virus containment restrictions in Kenya.



"Internal flights are restricted, and road and rail transportation are limited geographically and by curfew," the US Department of State said.



Travellers have been warned that even though most businesses are running, significant restrictions have been put on the dining and entertainment sector.



The advisory comes following another heated diplomatic clash over a Covid-19 travel ban between Kenya and the United Kingdom.



Over the weekend, Kenya reacted after the UK halted visitors from Kenya because of its high rate of Covid-19 infections. Kenya countered, banning visitors from the UK.
