Mbagathi nurses stage go-slow over lack of proper Coronavirus training

Nurses at the Mbagathi Hospital have gone on a go-slow over lack of proper training on handling the cases of Coronavirus (COVID-19).

According to a report by Nation, the nurses claim that they have not received suitable training on handling arising cases of the virus that has been declared pandemic by the World Health Organization (WHO)

The nurses are also reported to lament lack of support that will help protect their families.

This comes even as government announced a few days ago that the second isolation and treatment facility for Coronavirus with a 120-bed capacity had been set up at the Mbagathi Hospital.

Health Cabinet secretary Mutahi Kagwe noted that the country was ready to tackle the pandemic and that 1100 health care workers had been trained on handling the same.

The first isolation unit is at the Kenyatta National Hospital.
