|Govt Announces Random Coronavirus Screening by Kenyans247(m): Thu 19, March, 2020 08:10pm|
Health Cabinet Secretary Mutahi Kagwe has announced that the Ministry of Health will launch random screening services in several areas in the country.
Kagwe, in his address to the public on Thursday, March 19, informed the public that his ministry had launched the services in a measure to combat the spread of the Coronavirus pandemic.
"We will embark on random screening in targeted areas for members of the public starting Saturday, March 21. The exercise, that will be coordinated by the Ministry of health will involve other stakeholders such as Redcross, security personnel among others," he stated.He further announced that the government was structuring a dedicated team to help in combating the virus from further spread.
"The Public Service Commission has today approved the remaining Ebola Champions who have now been incorporated to assist in the Covid-19 response intervention.
"Our public health team has also embarked on the disinfection of various premises and locations in Nairobi City," Kagwe informed the public.
He further added that the ministry had reached out to the county governments and had launched plans to have them carry out the same disinfection exercises in their respective counties.
Kagwe, in his address further urged Kenyans working from home to remain true to the cause since the Covid-19 outbreak is not a holiday season but a time to fight the disease.
He lamented that people had taken to congregating in entertainment joints, bars, and restaurants, thereby beating the purpose of asking them to keep a safe social space.
For this reason, Kagwe threatened that the government would take action on such joints that people have taken to congregating in.
"We are seeking civic responsibility, and that is a pregnant term because it carries with it certain aspects of behaviour that we must change.
"If we have been asked to take our children home and to isolate them, it did not mean that we now start taking them to shopping centres, markets and playgrounds, that is not what the intention is. The intention is to create social distance," Kagwe insisted.
