Coronavirus Disease 19 (COVID-19) was officially declared a global pandemic by the World Health Organization (WHO) on March 11, 2020. After its emergence in Wuhan, China, the pandemic spread at an unprecedented rate and was first reported in Kenya on 12 March 2020. In this manuscript, we have provided an overview of the impact of COVID-19 on different aspects of the Kenyan context. Some of the areas where the COVID-19 pandemic was felt in Kenya include healthcare preparedness, public health awareness, digital transformation, supply chain resilience, collaboration and coordination, economic diversification, social safety nets, research and innovation, community engagement, and emergency preparedness. We will discuss how the pandemic affected these areas and state areas where the country can improve to ensure better preparedness in the future.

Keywords: COVID-19, Kenya, pandemic, lessons, healthcare.
