I came across another update regarding the coronavirus and had to share my findings with you all. The following information comes from the Daily Nation.
Kenyan scientists have joined the global search for a vaccine for COVID-19. A research team from The University of Nairobi (UoN) has come up with a research protocol and completed coronavirus case management guidelines. Disease specialist Dr. Loice Achieng’ Ombajo advised the following:
“The guidelines will form the basis of how the coronavirus response will be coordinated and managed. We are now mobilising resources to support the research.”
The team’s responsibilities will include studying how the virus is responding to treatment, and that information will be used for current and future epidemics. Professor Julia Ojiambo stated the following:
“Kenyan people are looking at institutions of higher learning and research to provide solutions on stopping coronavirus. We are assembling our best researchers and scientists to assist.”
