Covid-19: KUPPET appeals to Kenyans to observe prevention protocols

The Secretary General of the Kenya Union of Post Primary Teachers (KUPPET) has appealed to Kenyans to faithfully observe the established Covid-19 prevention protocols.

“Kenyans must faithfully observe the established protocols to prevent their catching the virus. The adage that prevention is better than cure has never rung so true in our country,” said KUPPET SG Akelo Misori.

In a statement, Misori noted that Kenya’s healthcare infrastructure would crumble if another surge were to be witnessed in the country.

He at the same time urged the government to equip public health facilities with the necessary Covid-19 management facilities including oxygen, ventilators and medicines to improve the level of care for Covid-19 patients.

“As a union, we support the scientifically-proven Covid-19 control protocols. We commend the government for its vaccination initiative, which has benefitted large numbers of frontline health workers and other essential workers including teachers,” he said.

Misori welcomed the proclamation of Public order No. 3 by President Uhuru Kenyatta.

He said the proclamation which effectively opened up the five counties of Nairobi, Machakos, Kiambu, Nakuru and Kajiado counties that had been declared a disease zone is a reprieve for millions of Kenyans who have suffered job losses, business failures and deep anxieties from COVID-19 pandemic.
