The County Assembly of Nandi has suspended its activities until further notice following the Coronavirus threat in Kenya. Addressing the assembly, the County Speaker Joshua Kiptoo said the move is aimed at taming and reducing the risks of a potential spread. 

The total number of Coronavirus cases currently stands at 7 after three more cases were confirmed on Wednesday by Health CS Mutahi Kagwe. Counties have taken measures to tackle the spread of the virus. However, Governors on Wednesday urged the national government to decentralize testing in order to improve the services on offer. Governors led by CoG chairman Wycliffe Oparanya said testing among other processes should be decentralized as this will also increase efficiency and proximity.

Nandi County government has already taken measures in ensuring the safety of the public and residents are required to fully comply with the stringent measures.
