The Kenya National Union of Nurses (KNUN) Secretary General Seth Panyako has accused government of doing little to protect nurses and other health workers.

Panyako has called upon health workers to flee a hostile working environment.

"Under the Occupational Safety and Health Act, 2007, health workers are free to flee from a hostile environment like the current Coronavirus crisis," he said.

He points that health workers across counties are making distress calls as they do not have protective gears and training is deficient.
