Press Statement on Preparedness of Counties on COVID-19

Chairman CoG20198th July 2020

On behalf of the 47 County Governments, I take this opportunity to thank our Excellency the President for his continued leadership during this period. We appreciate the support extended to Counties through the Ministry of Agriculture by writing off 62 Billion owed by Sugar Companies in various Counties. We also wish to thank the National Treasury for releasing Kshs.10.3 Billion grants from the World Bank to support various programmes in the counties. We further thank the Ministry of Health for releasing allowances for healthcare workers amounting to Kshs. 2.3 Billion. Fellow Kenyans, as we continue in the fight against this pandemic, we undertake to support the directives issued by the President during the 9th State address on the coronavirus pandemic. Indeed, we support the phased re-opening of the Country. However, we must all remain vigilant by implementing the guidelines issued by the Ministry of Health.
In the past few days, we have witnessed the number of positive cases recorded averaging 200 per day. It is therefore evident that the disease is spreading at an accelerating rate. This points to the need for intense effort by both levels of government and other stakeholders to confront the pandemic. At the same time, it points to concerted effort for individual responsibility failure to which the control of the disease will be impossible and fatal.
