In a press briefing at governor’s office, Rusana, Rotich and Oluoch said the order was with immediate effect. 
The committee further suspended all public gatherings, burials and meetings including those for religious purposes. 
At the Sirare border crossing and Migingo highland, the government according to Rotich will provide hand washing detergents and running water and see into sanitization for the good of the residents. 
Madam Isca on her side urged those spreading unconfirmed messages over the treatment center in Nyatike to stop unnecessary attention seeking as that throws residents into panic.
