COUNTY SET TO BEGIN MASS FUMIGATION EXERCISE

The County Government of Nandi is intensifying efforts against Covid-19 by taking all preventive measures to prevent and counter the spread of the pandemic.

The County Department of Health will kick off a mass exercise of disinfecting market places across the county, Kapsabet GK prison and bus parks as a mitigation measure of containing the spread of the novel coronavirus (Covid-19).

The virus is known to survive more on surfaces than on air, especially on walls and wood and hence these efforts.

The County Director of Public Health Alfred Bichii said that the department is taking the lead in ensuring all necessary precautions with regard to the covid-19 are observed.

He said the whole fumigation exercise forms part of a countywide disinfection of public spaces to control the spread of the disease.

Bichii said the exercise would continue until the spread of the disease was contained.

He urged Nandi residents to stay at home as much as they could and take care of their children at this time.
