The highest allowances will be paid to the healthcare workers in the isolation wards in the county.

"Other professional health workers - doctors, nurses, clinical officers etc will receive Sh 10,000 shillings because they are the ones examining patients some of whom might be Covid-19’positive. The supportive health worker cadres will receive 5,000 shillings," he outlined.

The workers will receive the allowances for three months initially, beginning on April 1st.
