Press statement on County Governments response measures to the COVID-19 pandemic

4th August 2021

Chairman CoG2019Fellow Kenyans,
Members of the Press,
The COVID- 19 pandemic continues to put a strain on;
i. The County health systems;
ii. The lives of Kenyans and ;
iii. The Country is currently facing a resurgence of the 3rd wave.

Despite the sustained counter-measures by County Governments to address the pandemic, there is increased pressure from emerging variants, such as the delta variant, that are proving to be more transmissible and violent.

These variants have contributed significantly to the surge of infection rates noted in Western Kenya region. However, the region has been overtaken by the following 6 counties which have reported the highest number of infections;-
• Nairobi City,
• Mombasa City
• Nakuru;
• Kiambu;
• Nyeri and;
• Kilifi
Currently, the positivity rate is 15.4 %. This is high and we must strive to reduce the rate to the WHO recommended rate of below 5% and thus flattening the curve.

Not withstanding the foregoing, there is some good news. The testing capacity has been boosted in Counties with additional 17 PCR machines distributed in the month of May.
I commend the Ministry of Health for availing the much needed PCR Machines.
On the same breathe, we appeal to the Ministry of Health to now go a step further by providing the Counties with the much needed testing reagents and rapid testing kits.
