By James Munyeki | March 30th 2020
Nyandarua County has bought drugs and medical supplies worth Sh45 million through Kenya Medical Supplies Agency (Kemsa).
The drugs will be supplied to all health facilities within the county. This is the second batch to be purchased by the county government in the past six months.
Nyandarua Governor Francis Kimemia said even as the County prepares to combat the coronavirus, health facilities should be equipped to deal with other illnesses.
"Preparedness must be holistic and touch on every aspect of health prevention, promotion and treatment. The supplies we receive today are part of our health strategy that ensures our health facilities are equipped to deal with not just Covid-19 but other illnesses handled on routine," Mr Kimemia said.
He added that 40 medical interns had been posted to JM Memorial Hospital and Engineer County Referral Hospital, as well as other health centres and dispensaries.
“The interns will ensure county health facilities run seamlessly through adequate staffing,” he noted.
He said the county was well prepared to fight the spread of the Coronavirus, adding that public places were being fumigated.
