“Additional 172,560 litres of free hand sanitisers have been sent to county health departments under the auspices of the Council of Governors,” he said.

The sanitiser is packed in 500-millilitre bottles for households and 20-litre jerrycans for large institutions.

Mr Irungu added that the sanitiser is produced in Nairobi and Mombasa. Another 138,252 litres had been sent to county commissioners’ offices.

He said 217,048 litres were allocated to various institutions and community-based organisations to be distributed to informal settlements, market places and hotspot areas of Nairobi and Mombasa.
