The president who was addressing anxious nation at the State House on Saturday, June 6, afternoon said that most counties were not prepared enough to handle the novel virus

“Siaya for instance has a 10-bed isolation facility. Busia county has a 34-bed isolation facility that was full two days ago…If there is a surge in infections in the counties, the health care system will be overwhelmed…Are Kenyans ready to nurse COVID-19 patients at home?,” he posed.
