Video: Kenyan Governor Falsely Claims Alcohol Protects Against The Rona, Plans to Include Hennessy in Corona Virus Care Packages

I mean, I don’t think science will confirm this corona virus deterrent, but Nairobi, Kenya Governor, Mike Sonko, is read to let the libations flow.

The governor of Nairobi, Kenya was blasted on social media after announcing his plans to include “small bottles of Hennessy” in food packs being distributed to the city’s poor families amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Governor Mike Sonko presented the plans during a Tuesday media briefing.

“From the research which has been conducted by World Health Organization (WHO) and various health organizations, it has been revealed that alcohol plays a very major role in killing the coronavirus or any sort of virus,” Sonko said in a clip, tweeted by Citizen TV Kenya.

My first question, what size bottles are being passed out? Are we talking mini-bar, 350ml, what size? Also, is is the V.S., or the X.O.?

Dr. Githinji Gitahi, the global CEO of Amref Health Africa, condemned Sonko in a tweet.

The CDC recommends alcohol-based sanitizers with greater than 60-70 percent isopropanol in healthcare settings. The Hen Dawg is only 40 percent, therefor ineffective as a hand sanitizer.
