Mombasa County government has announced a raft of measures to help curb the spread of Covid-19.
In a statement signed by Governor Ali Hassan Joho and County commissioner Gilbert Kitiyo, the county banned home-based care ICU facilities for Covid-19 patients.
The county government has also suspended all public gatherings and in-person meetings until further notice.
