Nairobi County Health Deputy Director Wilson Langat said that fumigators will be mounted on vehicles within the city centre on Wednesday, an exercise which will also see street families go through sanitisation.
“The vehicles will move around and disinfect locations within the CBD. We have requested the Ministry of Health to provide the necessary equipment for the process,” said Mr Langat.
“Street children are also part of us, and we shall come in as a county and sanitise those we find on the streets,” he added.
This comes after the National Government carried out the first fumigation in the country on Saturday in Rongai after it was reported that a woman who tested positive for new coronavirus (Covid-19) resided in the area.
The Nairobi City County has announced that it will start fumigating the central business district (CBD) and its environs on today as part of measures to contain the spread of new coronavirus.
At the same time, the devolved unit said it aims to train at least 3,500 health workers to handle patients with suspected cases of covid-19 by Friday.
