The county government of Murang'a has embarked on fumigating all public places in a bid to curb the spread of Coronavirus.

The exercise targets the urban centres, market grounds and matatu terminus where there is human traffic.

County Executive Officer for Health Joseph Mbai said the fumigation shall be done more often to help reduce contamination in public places.

"This is one of the mitigation measures we are taking to reduce the spread of the virus in our county," he said.

He said the number of Covid-19 cases in the county is on the rise urging the members of the public to be more careful and adhere to the safety measures.

"People should wear masks, keep distance, and sanitize regularly to reduce the risk of contracting the virus," he said.

He also urged members of the public to go for the corona jab at the designated health facilities in the county.

"The vaccine is available and those who want to be injected can go for it" he said.

Last week, the county headquarters office was closed for two weeks after some of the staff members contracted the virus.
