Kenyans must strictly follow the safety measures against the coronavirus epidemic to avoid the grave danger staring them in the face, Makueni Woman Representative Rose Museo says.
“We have all heard how other countries have been hit hard by this menace. More than 15,000 people have died worldwide. Let’s learn from them and take care,” she pleaded.
She also called upon Kenyans to avoid congested public areas and observe social distancing, as the virus does not show symptoms in the early stages and one wouldn’t easily tell who is and who is not infected.
“Italy ignored taking precautions and has ended up burying many people. But those that have observed the safety measures have prevented the virus.”
The Woman Rep urged the Ministry of Health to increase public education on the virus and set up coronavirus isolation wards in all the public hospitals.
“Prevention is better than cure. God is watching over us, but we should also do our part.”
Meanwhile, Wiper Party Secretary Peter Mathuki has urged the Kamba community to keenly observe the safety measures to prevent the spread of coronavirus.
Mathuki said the economy would drastically decline not only in Kenya, but in other countries because of the epidemic.
“More than 6,000 lives have been lost in Italy to the virus, which has no cure and no vaccine, It’s a great risk. Please stay at home, avoid all public gatherings at all costs until the threat subsides,” said the trained economist.
