Press statement on preparedness of County Governments on COVID-19

Chairman CoG201912th August 2020

As you are aware, all 47 County Governments have been affected by the novel coronavirus. This, therefore, calls for a concerted effort from all the stakeholders.
County Governments have continued to enhance their response measures towards COVID-19. We appreciate the efforts by the Ministry of Health in assessing the County Governments’ level of preparedness and the overall status of healthcare. Whereas Counties are making effort in addressing the pandemic, we take cognizance of the challenges cited during these visits, one of which is stigmatization.
As Council of Governors, we have strived to create awareness on Coronavirus through radio and TV programs conducted on a weekly basis. However, we note that this is not enough hence there is a need for complementary effort from stakeholders. In this regard, we appeal to all media houses and the Civil Society Organizations to partner with County Governments and conduct civic education on COVID-19 through their platforms. This will go a long way in equipping the members of the public with much-needed information.
