Dawa Group donates medicine worth Ksh 2m towards Kiambu County COVID-19 Emergency Fund.


Dawa Group has donated medicine worth Ksh 2 million towards the Kiambu County COVID-19 Emergency Fund.

In a brief ceremony held on Friday at the Thika Sub-County offices, Group Managing Director Dr. Ajay Patel said that the donation included sanitisers and the 15 different drugs directly related to COVID-19.

Dr. Ajay added that, in the near future, they were also targeting to develop vaccines.

Governor Dr. James Nyoro thanked the company and the Kenya Association of Manufacturers (KAM) for their continued support to the county COVID-19 Fund, both intellectually and in material form.

He added that after recording its 58th COVID-19 case, the county would, beginning next week, commence targeted mass testing of the disease in mapped out areas of the county.

"We are also ready to open up the economy depending on the directives that will be set out by the president (Uhuru Kenyatta) but we must also be cautious not to set stage for a spike in the number of people contracting the virus," he said.

Currently, the county has 4 COVID-19 Centres with a targeted 300-bed capacity. These are Tigoni Hospital, Thika Level 5 Hospital, Gatundu Level 5 Hospital which is purely dedicated as an Isolation Centre for health workers and Kiambu Level 5 Hospital.

Recently, the county received some other medical drugs worth KES. 176 million from Kenya Medical Supplies Authority (KEMSA) and a further drugs consignment worth KES. 21 million from Mission for Essential Drugs and Supplies (MEDS)
