“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.
