Nyamira County Governor John Nyagarama has set new measures to residents, a day after Coronavirus case was reported in the neighbouring Kisii.

The county boss on Wednesday released 100 litres holding capacity water tanks to 20 wards, urging residents to wash their hands with clan running water, soap and keep social distance as directed by the ministry of health.

The Governor said the water holding tanks will be placed public places such as hospitals and markets, in an effort levelled at confronting the could-be cases of covid-19 pandemic.

In a statement read on his behalf by the Environment and Water Executive Committee Member Samwel Maiko, the governor disclosed that under his leadership, Nyamira County is not leaving anything to chance.

 "I want to assure my constituents that we are fully prepared and ready to keep this pandemic at bay,” read the statement in part.

Governor Nyagarama added that it is worth noting that a number of residents have embraced the health basics as directed by government and have kept adhering to the Ministry of health guidelines and hygiene protocols.

He added that his administration is on high alert, with no homegrown COVID-19 case having been reported in the County.

The governor also called on members to be observant of the measures set, discouraging inter-county movements to limit the risk of contracting the virus.

Coronavirus cases in the country have increased to 179, after today’s report showed 7 new reported cases in the last 24-hours.
