Governor Mwangi Wa Iria has asked residents of Murang’a to limit movement between counties to avert the spread of the coronavirus.
At the same time, he has banned visitors from other counties from travelling to Murang’a saying they are placing the county under the risk of the pandemic.
He was speaking in Muranga where over 1000 litres of hand-sanitizer were handed over to stakeholders for use at bus terminals across the county.
He asked the National Government to consider banning travel between counties saying it will be a key step in stopping the spread of the coronavirus.
“I know this will be unpopular but I do not want visitors in Murang’a form other counties, Murang’a people should also stay in Murang’a, experts say this virus is spread by people moving from one place to the other,” He said.
“This coronavirus is following movement of people, we do not want you to travel and infect people or travel and bring the disease here, we have to be careful,” He added.
