Kisumu, Kenya, May, 2020 -- Kisumu Governor Anyang' Nyong’o has launched a Covid-19 call centre.
The centre's toll-free number is 0800-720-575. It is located at the Maseno University city campus at Mega Plaza.
The centre was developed with support from the county government, Maseno University and Pharm Access.
Maseno University medical students will man the centre, which will operate 24-7. The students were trained by the Health department on Covid-19 prevention and treatment.
"The call centre will give the public an opportunity to receive information about the dangers of the virus and its prevention," Nyong’o said on Wednesday.
He said the centre will link the public with health teams and will help improve contact tracing. It will also help provide psychosocial support to callers.
Kisumu has tested 100 samples from 152 suspected cases, with all of them returning negative. Of these, 82 were male and 18 female.
"We are emphasising prevention, creating awareness and observing all the measures that are put in place by the government," Nyong’o said.
The county has bought masks, gumboots, gloves, face shields, aprons, disposal bins and other necessary equipment.
"We have set up a 16-bed ICU ward complete with monitors, respirators, and ventilators for Covid-19 management and we have increase bed capacity to 29," Nyong’o said.
He said the plan is to increase the bed capacity to 300. Nyong’o urged the national government to help the county buy 250 ventilators and patient monitors.
