The government will not relent in the war against the coronavirus, Coast regional commissioner John Elungata has assured Kenyans.
He asked Kenyans to observe the health protocols laid down by the health ministry insisting that it is the only way to curb the spread of the deadly disease.
Elung’ata was speaking to the media in Mombasa after receiving hand sanitisers worth Ksh 5.6 million from Kisumu based sugar company, Kibos, CEO Raju Sigh to curb the spread of COVID-19 in the coastal region.
The regional administrator notes that total compliance with the health protocols will be monitored by the police to protect lives during the pandemic.
He asked Kenyans to adhere to all the Covid-19 protocols at all times including social and physical distancing, regular washing of hands with soap and water, wearing facemasks.
The RC wants public service vehicles to further adhere to all the preventative measures to safeguard the public.
“The government will not let down its guard in combating the spread of covid-19 in this country. People should abide by all the health guidelines issued by the Ministry of Health in a bid to break the cycle of infections and defeat the disease,” Elungata noted.
He said all the relevant authorities would remain vigilant at all times in a bid to avert a scenario of another lockdown as witnessed last year in the Old town.
He urged “pedestrian crossing through Mombasa Island should use the new Likoni floating bridge to assist in easing congestion at the Likoni crossing channel,”
The administrator called on the political class in the region to desist from holding political gatherings and meetings
He lauded Kibos CEO Raju Sigh Patel for the donation of 4000 boxes of hand sanitiser, which he said will help in the fight against the third wave of COVID-19.
The RC said the consignment will be dispatched in the six coastal counties for distribution with churches and mosques being included as beneficiaries.
On his part, Mr. Patel, urged Kenyans to adhere to the Ministry of Health Covid-19 protocols to stem down the spread of the virus.
Mr Patel called on wealthy Kenyans and well-wishers to donate relief food supplies to Kenyans affected by the pangs of covid-19.
The CEO notes that the company has distributed over six hundred thousand litres of hand sanitiser countrywide since last year when the pandemic struck in Kenya.
