The best way to beat the spread of Coronavirus is through prevention, Uasin Gishu Deputy Governor Daniel Chemno has said.
Speaking while receiving donations from AMREF Africa the DG said if we stick to all guidelines provided by the Government COVID-19 will be suppressed hence flatten the curve.
The best treatment is enhancing prevention, We are aware that The great North Road traverses Uasin Gishu and therefore our people stand a higher chance of contracting the disease from truck drivers,” Chemno said.
Health Services County Executive Committee Member Mrs Evelyne Rotich said that her department was enhancing sensitization and surveillance at this time when the virus is on the rise.
On their part AMREF- AFRICA, led by Director in charge of Tuberculosis, Malaria and HIV control Dr Bernard Lang’at said that his organization together with European Union has set aside 2.5 million Euros for nine counties Uasin Gishu include to support complement efforts in improving isolation centres, frontline staff, improvement of contact tracing and disease surveillance.
Also present during the function was Chief Officer Mr. Joseph Keroney.
So far Uasin Gishu County has recoded over 90 Cases of Corona Virus infections.
