1000 PPE’s have already been donated to Nyandarua County. Francis Kimemia Nyandarua County governor says his government shall distribute them among areas where we have the threat of coronavirus.

According to our statistics we have conducted 600 sample tests from Nyandarua County and none has tested positive; however this does not mean that the people of Nyandarua are immune from contracting the virus.

We need to utilise the “Nyumba Kumi” governance structure. This is to ensure that there are no strangers coming to your homes & villages because this is the main way that the virus is transmitted.

By the time someone is allowed to go home from the isolation or quarantine facilities, we have confirmed that the said person will not be able to transmit coronavirus to the rest of the community members.

State House would like to inform Kenyans that His Excellency the President and the First Family are safe and free from Covid-19.

State House would also like to remind Kenyans that every person is at risk of contracting Covid-19. No one is immune to the disease.

Let’s us all therefore endeavor to fully adhere to the Covid-19 containment protocols as set out by Ministry of Health (MOH_Kenya)
