Migori County referral hospital administration block has been shut for the next 14 days after one staff tested positive for covid-19.
This is according to Migori County minister for health Dr.Iscah Oluoch who said that all the other officers in various departments from the block are now working from home as a means of enhancing the covid-19 containment measures.
While speaking to Sky fm over the matter, Dr.Oluoch said that as implementers they were forced to work from home as the contact tracing of the individuals who could have had any contact with the victim officer is on.
She said they have been receiving so many visitors in the recent past suspected that could have contributed to the case however saying that other services at the hospital like treatments are still on however all those entering the facility must adhere to the put rules and regulation.
Dr.Oluoch however appealed to the residents of Migori County at large to ensure they follow the containment measures given by the ministry of health saying most of the residents are now ignoring such measures which he said is now putting the county at risk of experiencing high number of affected individuals which he said is so dangerous adding that they will still enforce the covid-19 measures.
This however comes just a few days after the outpatient unit of the Lwala community alliance hospital from Rongo Sub County was shut by the ministry of health after 10 health workers from the institution tested positive for covid-19.
