Health Cabinet Secretary, Mutahi Kagwe has revealed that the Kenyan government is to begin compulsory training for its police as part of the coronavirus emergency preparedness.
He started on Wednesday that the police need the knowledge and skills to isolate and employ security measures in some areas should the need arise.
Kagwe said “So far God has been kind to Kenya because all the cases we have tested so far were all negative. We don’t have a single positive case in our country at the moment so we have to keep praying. Some counties have reserved special ambulances to transport persons with suspected cases.”
He added that the country has enough protective gear, with the process of the distribution having begun in counties across the country. He revealed that the Mbagathi hospital isolation ward is expected to be done by today (Thursday).
This development comes as a result of the World Health Organisation issuing a warning of a possible outbreak of the virus in the country.
