The County Government of Nakuru has identified and equipped about 80 institutions to be used as Covid-19 isolation centres in case there are multiple infections in the county. Most of those selected are secondary schools across the 11 Sub-counties in Nakuru. This comes even as the Kenya Union of Post primary Education Teachers, KUPPET, raised concern over the use of schools as Covid-19 isolation centres. Molo Sub County has the largest number of facilities at 13.
The number of Covid-19 patients continues to increase in the country even as the government puts up a spirited fight against the deadly disease.
The list below shows the selected facilities; including the available bed capacities:
