The Star Newspaper reports that Kenya has formed an Oxygen Taskforce to deal with the shortage. It is a year since the pandemic hit this country. All along we have known that patients in hospitals more often than not require oxygen.
In fact, at one point, Devki Limited offered to supply oxygen for free in exchange for canisters. The government did not move a muscle, although private hospitals started collecting oxygen from Devki.
Now, it is morning, after a dark and cold night for Kenyans. The government announces that it is forming a task force to look for bedsheets.
