The government has now ordered all Public Service Vehicles, PSV to wash and fumigate their vehicle to contain the virus.
Speaking on the issue was CS James Macharia who said that this should be done after every trip and not in the evening as it has been the case.
Macharia also called the operators to equip the matatus with hand sanitizers.

The Kenya Railways was not spared either as the directive was also directed to them.
He confirmed to have communicated with Kenya Railways on the new measures of fumigation.
The CS warned PSV operators of having their licenses canceled if they are found to have violated the orders.
Speaking on the same issue was the chairman of the Matatu Owners Association Simon Kimutai who called on conductors to insist on the use of mobile payment.
Kimutai said that mobile transactions are safer than the use of cash which moves around from person to the other thus risking lives.
The issue of shortages was also mentioned as the country is reported to have run out of sanitizers to service orders.
