Children are identified by the Ministry of Health as potential transmitters of the Covid-19 disease within the country.
Health Director General Dr Patrick Amoth on Monday said that oldsters should make sure that they limit interactions between their children and others to assist stop the spread of coronavirus.
This is after a six-month-old baby was among the 25 new confirmed cases of coronavirus within the last 24 hours.
“Of importance is this issue of the children because in today’s presser we told you of a child who is just six months old and has tested positive. Most of the children tend to be totally asymptomatic and because children tend to play with other children they are potentially very good transmitters,” Dr Amoth said.
Dr Amoth asked parents to make sure their children take the required precautions.
“The message today is to ensure that you limit interactions between your children and others and also ensure that they undertake precaution measures, including hand washing, using sanitisers and of course practising physical and social distancing,” Dr Amoth explained.
