Mwachonda noted that there is an increased number of healthcare workers being infected.

As a result, members of the public seeking healthcare services in hospitals are advised to observe extra safety.

He also added that the ministry of health together with the county governments should take up training and educating members about the vaccine.

Machakos Governor Alfred Mutua also took to Twitter to support KMPDU that there are no more available ICU beds. Even though his tweet was received with so much backlash.

The country today recorded 1127 new infections  tested from a sample of 5,390 people in the last 24 hours.
