Nakuru government will fumigate all bus terminus and markets in the county in a bid to contain the spread of COVID-19 which has already killed hundreds globally.
With the number of those testing positive in the country on the rise, the county stepped up its fumigation exercise as part of mitigation measures against the pandemic. This emerged when the county health officers embarked on a major fumigation exercise in Naivasha town and its suburbs after a similar one in Nakuru.
According to the Chief Officer in charge of Medical services Dr Solomon Sirma, the fumigation was targeting areas with high population during the day. He said that the county was keen to make sure that no resident from the county turned positive noting that this would be done by observing the laid down procedures. “We shall make that all terminus and markets within the county are fumigated as part of the measures to spread the spread of this disease,” he said. https://youtu.be/Dx67r2gnl8U
This comes as Mombasa Governor Ali Hassan Joho won the hearts of many after he tested and officiated the sanitizing Spray Booth Prototype at the Likoni Ferry Terminus a project that was jointly sponsored by the Hassan Joho Foundation and the Suleiman Shahbal Foundation.
Prof. Josiah Odalo of Technical University of Mombasa, who was involved in the project, said the reagents used to make the disinfecting solution is safe.
At the same time, Joho said the county is in the process of mounting Thermo-cameras at the crossing channel that will capture not only the images but also the temperatures of those using the ferry.
