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 the Kenya Red Cross, security personnel among others," Kagwe stated.


Screening by checking body temperature has been cited as an important tool in the fight against Covid-19.

However, temperature checks have been faulted for delivering false positives or missing cases. It is therfore advised that they are used in conjunction with other testing methods.
