Ministry of Health officials in Kakamega have isolated two women who have shown positive symptoms of the deadly coronavirus even as the country’s confirmed cases stand at 7. The two women, one had traveled from Qatar to the country few days ago while the other has been in Khwisero.
This comes even as the state has more than tripled its efforts to battle the COVID-19. Yesterday, government ordered for the release of all ethanol held under any offences at any port of entry and custom areas, to be released to the Kenya Pipeline Agency to help in the manufacture of free hand sanitizers which will be distributed to the public.
The KPC will liaise with corporations intent on producing the free hand sanitizers as well as putting a framework of accountability to ensure the ethanol is specifically used in production of the sanitizers, and not any other thing.
