Press Statement on Preparedness of Counties for COVID-19

Chairman CoG2019

We thank the President for showing leadership in the Country’s response towards the Corona virus pandemic. We also thank County Governments for putting in efforts to address the Covid-19. I am confident that the ongoing processes will deliver positive results with adequate support from the Ministry of Health and Development partners.
Despite the measures put in place County Governments continue to face a myriad of challenges as follows:
1. Inadequate Personal Protective Equipment (PPE):
All 47 counties Governments cumulatively received only 2805 PPE kits instead of the promised 305,000 sets of PPE kits. This poses a serious challenge and vulnerability of health workers in the response.
We urge the CS Health to take up this matter seriously to ensure the country acquires enough stock to help us contain the virus.
With neighbouring countries confirming cases of Covid -19, border Counties need to be classified among the high-risk counties for heightened surveillance because of their proximity with affected countries.
