Success will depend on the level of involvement of the people,” We will continue to work with by offering support to upgrade the county human resource and equipment capacity.” Said CS Kagwe.
The CS called on healthcare workers to work within the guidelines of the Ministry of Health and the skills they acquired on how to handle COVID-19 disease.
Kagwe also bashed claims that the country is running out of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) noting that the country will no longer import PPEs, since it can supply from its own capacity.
“The country will no longer import the PPEs because local manufacturers are producing enough,” assured Health CS Kagwe.
