The health officials have warned that personal and Public Service Vehicles (PSV) are potential carriers of the deadly virus.
The government has urged owners of public and private vehicles to ensure their vehicles are sanitized both in the exterior and interior.

Some of the cleaning companies such as Extreme Clean have gone a step further and is wooing healthcare staff who own vehicles by giving them a special offer of 50 per cent discount for services.

Owing to disruption of businesses of many Kenyans, the company has also offered a 10 per cent discount on all its car services for its clients.
The company has further introduced a monthly subscription for unlimited car washes at discounted rates for corporate clients.
To bring services closer to their clients, the company has also introduced mobile car-wash services to clients who are unable to drive to their work station.
The firm is located in strategic locations and shopping malls in Nairobi including Hub Karen, Naushad Merali Drive, Lavington, Two Rivers Mall, Runda, TRM Mall, Thika Road, Garden City Mall, Ananas Mall and Makongeni Thika.
