During the daily COVID-19 press briefing that was done in Othaya, Nyeri, Health CS Mutahi Kagwe called upon Kenyans to continue observing the COVID-19 measures strictly, to ensure that the country wins the fight against the pandemic.
According to CS Kagwe, the time has come where everyone is expected to protect themselves from COVID-19, by assuming that the person next to you is COVID-19 positive.
Kagwe also denied reports claiming that there is a shortage of COVID-19 Personal Protective Equipment (PPEs) in the country, insisting that local manufacturers have risen to the occasion to ensure this is catered for.
Nyeri county has reported 9 cases in today’s COVID-19 cases.
On his part, Health Ministry Director General Patrick Amoth urged Kenyans to respect burial protocols set for those who succumb to COVID-19.
