Bony Khalwale out of his experience reveals that there is unnecessary secrecy surrounding the test for the pandemic disease.

According to Khalwale, the cost of the corona virus test, stigma and quarantine, is hampering the mass testing in the country.,

“When i took the test, i was amazed at the unnecessary secrecy surrounding covid-19 testing. Critical for management, mass testing is being hampered , high cost of Ksh. 10,800 per test, Stigma *make all test results/hospitalizations public). and quarantine (encourage self quarantine)”. Said Bony Khalwale.
