The project was to ensure that citizens combat coronavirus infection through proper hygiene.

Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) released Ethanol they had confiscated to be used to manufacture the products.

Kenyans are however raising concerns of some unscrupulous trades taking advantage and reselling them.

“Someone will remove the stickers and start selling them. I can’t trust this govt with anything. Not even with itself.” Said blogger Robert Alai.

Yesterday the Ministry of Health announced the first coronavirus death in the country.

The deceased was a 66-year-old Kenyan man who had traveled from South Africa through Swaziland.

He was also suffering from diabetes as he succumbed to the virus at the Aga Khan Intensive Care Unit where was admitted.
