Nakuru County is among the top ranking regions in number of Covid-19 infections.

Governor Lee Kinyanjui on Monday issued a statement cautioning residents to remain vigilant as the number of new infections were on the rise.

"The spread of the disease remains a key challenge to the rural elderly and more so, those with underlying conditions of diabetes and hypertension. It is therefore prudent that we undertake all necessary measures to insulate this vulnerable group from the risk of infections," the Governor stated.
