Kenyana have been apprehensive since the spread of news that Kenya had resumed hosting flights from China.
Immediately news of the landing of 239 passengers from China broke, unhappy Kenyans took to social media to express their deep seated anger with the decision.
Well it seems that the rant has gotten the attention of the President, Uhuru Kenyatta who has since responded with executive orders.
President Uhuru Kenyatta has set up a 21-person National Emergency Response Committee on Coronavirus.
The head of state said that the Committee will be chaired by the Cabinet Secretary for Health Mutahi Kagwe and members will include Cabinet Secretary for Foreign Affairs Raychelle Omamo, CS Transport James Macharia, Defence CS Monica Juma and ICT CS Joe Mucheru.
The President has also ordered that the Mbagathi hospital coronavirus section be completed within seven days despite the ministry of health saying the section would be complete in a month.
The 21-member team is also required to coordinate the supply of testing kits, protective gear, and other medical equipment.
Further, Mr Kenyatta ordered them to conduct Economic Assessment Impact and develop mitigation strategies on the virus.
