Contact tracing critical tool in controlling COVID-19: Kagwe
Health CS Mutahi Kagwe says contact tracing is a critical tool for controlling the pandemic through interruption of the transmission chain by early detection and isolation of cases.
Speaking Monday during the official hand over of vehicles to the County Directors of Health, Representatives of COG, and Nairobi Metropolitan Service, the CS said all counties are required to have rapid response/contact tracing.
“At the time of response to an alert on a suspected case, contacts are listed for follow-up and investigation and close contacts are tested and the rest are followed up for 14 days. I must say that this has not been an easy task, I congratulate our rapid response and surveillance teams for this great work they have been and continue doing. Initially, we were using telephone calls to get in touch with the contacts, but we are now rolling out a web based application, which is linked to the Kenya electronic medical records.” Said Kagwe
So far there are 229 teams in all the counties.

He added that the National Response and Contact Tracing team is currently conducting training for the teams on the usage of the web based tool and data management.
He said transport has been one of the key challenges identified especially in accessing the rural areas as the government works at providing of quality health care.
“Today, as we continue with this fight, I am delighted that the contact tracing team is receiving a major boost from our development partners. It is my pleasure to preside the handover ceremony and distribution of Rapid Response Vehicles to various counties. These vehicles have been procured by the Covid-19 Health Emergency Response Project(C-HREP) in my Ministry, at a cost of Kshs.102 million.” He added
The vehicles to be handed over to 13 counties, will boost capacity in contact tracing and surveillance as we work to curtail the spread of the virus in the country.
The counties identified to benefit from this support include; Nairobi which will get two vehicles one for Kenyatta National Hospital and the other, for the newly formed Nairobi Metropolitan Services.
Others are Mombasa, Kiambu, Kajiado, Machakos, Nyeri, Migori, Busia, Uasin Gishu, Nakuru, Taita Taveta, Elgeyo Marakwet and Kisii.
The overall C-HERP project and the outcomes are designed to assist countries to prevent, detect and respond to the threat posed by COVID-19, and to strengthen the national systems for public health preparedness and responsiveness.
Kagwe said the project was selected for COVID-19 financing, because of the strategic place Kenya holds when it comes to global connectivity and travel, and the risks posed.
The C-HERP is provided through the World Bank Group Fast Track Facility, as part of a Global COVID-19 Multi-phase Program Approach (MPA).
“Swift detection of an outbreak, assessment of its epidemic potential and rapid emergency response can reduce avoidable mortality and morbidity, reduce the economic, social and security impacts. Failure in the rapid mobilization of financing and coordination of response, results in unnecessary casualties and significant socioeconomic consequences. By focusing on the containment, diagnosis and treatment of patients, the proposed project seeks to control the disease outbreak and limit socio-economic losses.” He said
He noted that critical interventions are needed to reduce morbidity and mortality rates from existing and emerging infectious diseases, curtail the spread of COVID-19 and mitigate the social impacts of the outbreak.
The development of the National COVID-19 Preparedness and Response Plan includes, strengthening of the Public Health Emergency Operation Centre, for efficient emergency response for multiple hazards, strengthening surveillance and information systems. It also aims at increasing laboratory capacity, improved infection and prevention control, as well as case management, improve disease surveillance and emergency response in the country.

Significance of building a customer loyalty marketing list
Customer loyalty offers you a greater return on time, money, and efforts invested in providing customers with better services. When customers are loyal to your brand or business, they are more likely to buy more regularly from you.
Moreover, they also refer your company to others when someone asks for recommendations. Knowing the needs of customers, offering quality products, best services, and handling their complaints promptly are some of the great ways to build and boost customer loyalty. However, many businesses are implementing customer loyalty programs to build a broader loyal customer base and repeat business. A loyalty program gives your existing customers a tested reason to visit your business. When you offer free points to your customers for purchases, they return to your business to redeem earned points for something of great value.
Customer loyalty marketing, list building, is one of the critical aspects of implementing a loyalty program and making it successful. It also helps you grow and flourish your brand in many ways. Customer lists for loyalty marketing are created based on different criteria like customer buying behavior, buying habits, and money spent in your business in a specific period of time.
Elements of a virtuous customer loyalty marketing list
When you want to increase customer loyalty by offering them personalized offers and incentives, using your customer database could be a great way to get started. The database can create a customer loyalty marketing list to get more participants for your loyalty program. A virtuous, loyal customer list comes with a lot of customer details like contact details and other insights such as buying patterns, age brackets, total sum money spent on your products, birthdays, and anniversaries of customers. When you have all these details on hand, you can create personalized offers and incentives for your customers to make them feel unique and valued. Lack of a customer loyalty marketing list makes your business unable to have control over when and how to boost sales.
The method of creating such lists varies significantly from brand to brand and based on what customer detail requirements for a program. Picking the right customer loyalty software that comes with customer loyalty marketing list features helps you create customer lists without spending more money and effort.
Here is why you need to create customer loyalty marketing lists
When you provide excellent customer services, personalization is the key. More and more businesses are dealing with their customers on a more personal level to keep their customers engaged. Similarly, marketing your loyalty program to different customer lists (segmented customers) can help you get more from your loyalty program. It allows you to present your customers with special offers and incentives based on their spending habits and other shopping insights.
Here are the reasons why you should create customer loyalty marketing lists for increased customer retention and sales.
Increased loyalty program satisfaction
When you segment your customer reward program marketing list, you can intuitively market your program by offering special incentives and offers. By the following segmentation, you can generate the most return on investment. Experts say that customers are more satisfied with a loyalty program when personalization is done well in the program by offering personalized incentives to members. For that reason, offering personalized awards to your customers based on the customer’s lists generated by the software makes your loyalty program more productive.
Personalized Incentives and Rewards
The customer loyalty marketing list can help you keep customers engaged with your brand by creating special offers and personalized rewards according to their loyalty to your brand or company. Personalization in the loyalty program makes your customers feel unique and valued. Lack of personalization indicates to your customers that you are not vigilant to their interests. As a result, they are more likely to spend money elsewhere.
You can Send Exactly what your Customers Expect
Everyone knows that companies and businesses collect their information and personal data, including emails, spending habits, even IP addresses. Armed with this information, companies best put the data to good use. It is the place where building a customer loyalty marketing list can come in handy to send offers; they love to receive. Successful customer segmentation in the loyalty program makes it easier for you to create and send offers, rewards, and incentives to meet their individual needs and expectations.
When you provide customers with something fascinating via your loyalty program, they are more likely to visit your business for more purchases. Presenting them with personalized ads based on their interests and spending habits is a great way to influence them for more spending. A fully customized loyalty program using segmented customer lists, encourage your customers to visit your outlet or online store for frequently. It incredibly helps you grow your sales and boost the bottom line in a significant way.
