 The Corona Virus pandemic has not spared any sector of the global economy. The biggest economies are equally suffering the impact of the Corona Virus and Kenya is not unique. We are witnessing shortage of medical equipment and supplies to fight Corona Virus occasioned by the global shortage in supply and production. This is further compounded by financial constrains facing many countries.
The Council of Governors, Kenya resolved to partner with different organizations in order to raise the much-required resources to fight the Corona Virus. In view of the aforementioned, the Council constituted a donations committee to champion this. The Committee’s members are: H.E Francis Kimemia, H.E Martin Wambora, H.E Prof. Paul Chepkwony, Siaya Governor H.E Cornel Rasanga, and is patroned by Council of Governors Chairman H.E Wycliffe Oparanya.
The donations committee has so far formed several partnerships between the County Governments and the National Government, Private companies, Non-Governmental institutions among other entities. Recently, through the donations committee, the Kenya Pipeline Company donated 20,000 liters of hand sanitizers to Counties. This will be distributed on a weekly basis for the period of fighting the Pandemic. The sanitizers are distributed to the Counties based on the effect of the virus in the County, number of confirmed cases in the County as well as the location of the County for instance border Counties which are more porous as well as higher effect of the virus in the Countries they boarder. Currently, Nairobi County has the highest number of confirmed COVID 19 cases followed by Mombasa County.
