Ministry of Health says the sanitizing booths are useless and does not meet the international standard to help Kenyans in the fight against the naval virus.



According to Health Director-General Dr Patrick Amoth, the method is not approved by the Ministry guidelines, which are based on global and scientifically tested best studies aimed at leveling the curve.



“Of late, the Ministry has witnessed some interventions being put in place by counties, which are not backed by Ministerial and global guidelines such as spraying of people with chemicals through booths, tunnels and cabinets. This practice is not recommended and therefore should stop,” Dr Amoth said.


“To this effect, the Ministry has come up with Interim Guidance for health and safety measures in workplaces in the context of Covid-19. Section 3.2 of this guidance has elaborately addressed the subject matter,” he added.
