What you need to know:

  • Private hospitals across the country are congested with an increasing number of patients seeking treatment.
  • In Nyeri, the union threatened to fine nurses who had gone back to work without the deal being signed.

The crisis in public hospitals is likely to worsen as some county governments gave the striking nurses a week to return to work or face the sack.
