Government to increase vigilance along borders with Tanzania to stop spread of Covid-19
By Philip Mwakio | April 3rd 2021
Coast regional coordinator John Elungata has directed security agents along the borders of Kwale and Taita Taveta counties to put in place strict measures to curb the spread of Covid-19.
Elungata directed security teams in the two counties to work closely with health authorities in a bid to conduct checks on people entering the country from Tanzania through the designated transit points.
"We have heightened Covid-19 surveillance along the border as cross border points require strict surveillance to ensure those coming into the country through the borders are adequately screened," Elungata said during a tour at the Taita Taveta border.
He was accompanied by Taita Taveta county commissioner Rhodah Onyancha.
He also urged the communities living along the border points to observe health measures put in place by the government to contain the spread of Covid-19.
He asked Taita Taveta and Kwale County Covid-19 Emergency Response Committees to launch Covid-19 sensitisation campaigns to educate locals on proper safety measures.
"We should all take preventative measures to mitigate the spread of the virus," he said
