Recently, coronavirus has hit Kenya hard. The number of infected people is increasing at an alarming rate each. As of now, there are 126 confirmed COVID-19 cases.
There are three recovery cases and three death cases so far. Kenyans are still being urged to stay at home and wash their hands regularly.
Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko has been at the forefront in taking up measures to fight this virus. Nairobi is the most hit county with the highest number of infected patients. Sonko has been joining the team that is fumigating the city for five consecutive days.
“Tonight we are fumigating using the latest technology, in our possession we have different machines doing various work. One is a fog machine, that emits a dense vapor that appears similar to smoke which has enough capacity to kill bacteria within our environment.” Sonko Tweeted.
The process started 5 days ago. The sanitization campaign is targeting slums, estates, and roads in a bid to curb the spread of the killer corona virus. The fumigation process started in CBD, to Kibra, Kibagare in Westlands, Embakazi East, Buruburu among other wards.
This pandemic is to be fought by joint efforts from everyone. Therefore, let the citizens also play their part by following the measures put into place by the government to prevent transmission of this virus.
Discipline might aid in flattening the curve instead of promoting the upward projection of the virus every day.
The Nairobi residents should maintain high standards of hygiene and observe social distancing as a way of curtailing spread of the deadly virus.
