He spoke at the KMTC in Makindu Town, which is a Covid-19 quarantine facility. Dr Kaloki said the KMTC management would collaborate with the county governments to set up Covid-19 quarantine and treatment centres.

 He thanked Health CS Kagwe for supporting county governments to ensure there are enough facilities to handle Covid-19 patients.

 CS Kagwe visited the quarantine centres in Wote and Makindu towns. The Makindu KMTC quarantine facility is currently holding 90 Covid-19 patients.

Dr Kaloki called on the county governments to step up the campaign to ensure that the cases do not continue rising

He urged Kenyans to keenly observe the safety measures by the Health ministry to curb the spread of the virus,

CS Kagwe lauded Makueni for making great strides in the preparations to handle Covid-19 cases.

It is one of the few counties that have attained the recommended minimum of at least 300 Covid-19 isolation centre beds.

The county plans to set aside 800 isolation centre beds in its Covid-19 quarantine and treatment centres.
