NEW PUBLIC SANITIZATION BOOTHS TO BOOST OUR ENHANCED EFFORTS TO COMBAT COVID-19
Sunday, April 19th, 2020
Earlier today we launched new Public Sanitization Booths at Kencom, Kibra and Buruburu in our enhanced efforts to keep Nairobi safe from COVID-19. This first batch is part of the first fifty (50) booths that arrived yesterday to be installed in various open and public spaces across the City. Besides this we are also using ultra-modern thermal thermometers to check the temperature of residents before they walk through the Booths.
Installation continues tonight in other parts of the city including the informal settlements and the arrival of the other 150 booths currently under production will ensure that the entire city is covered.
These new machines come to boost our ongoing efforts to disinfect and fumigate the city, using the chemicals that have been recommended by the World Health Organisation, to flatten the curve.
During the event, we also gave out free face masks and hand sanitizers to the public donated by the Sonko Rescue team and the Government of Kenya.
I wish to urge all of us to strictly adhere to the guidelines issued by the Ministry of Health and WHO. This Corona Virus is real, but together we shall defeat it.
