Put on a mask when you go to the supermarket — Health CS Mutahi Kagwe

By Vincent Kejitan | April 4th 2020

Health CS Mutahi Kagwe has instructed Kenyans visiting supermarkets to start wearing protective masks.

Kagwe said it would be prudent to avoid transmissions in such spaces since local transmission is on the rise.

He further called upon the youth to use their energy to fight Coronavirus in the country by practicing social distancing and avoiding unnecessary travel.

“If you travel upcountry there is a possibility you are going to kill your parents and grandparents.

“Be part of the solution…we can overcome this,” said Kagwe.

The CS also told the youth to organise sports teams and saccos into clean-up and campaign teams against the virus and ensure that personal hygiene and social distancing measures are adhered to.

“Let the football teams and saccos organise themselves into clean-up teams and join security forces and health workers in fighting the disease,” he remarked.

He challenged the youth to seize the opportunity and fight the disease just like those who fought for our independence.

On Saturday, Kagwe announced that in the last 24 hours, 372 people had been tested and four were positive.

Among the four, three are Kenyans and one is a Pakistan national.

Three were male and one was female and their ages ranged between 34years and 44 years.

Kagwe also addressed those in quarantine saying some might have their stay extended since their contacts have tested positive for the virus.

He also expressed displeasure after it emerged that some of those in quarantine have been holding parties.
