The Nurses' Union has taken steps to pull out administrations in Kenyatta National Hospital and the Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital should the progressing strike stay uncertain in the following seven days.
Nurses in the two referral hospitals had been excluded from the strike by the union because majority of the issues raised had been tended to by the hospital boards.

Doctors on Thursday canceled their strike after reaching an agreement with the government.
The nurses and clinical officers have been protesting for as long as 20 days. As at Saturday, 34 nurses had succumbed to Covid-19 in their line of obligation.
"I have not heard any administration official needing to know why there is no strike in MTRH and KNH," Panyako said.
The healthcare workers have been protesting for provision of standard PPEs, extensive clinical cover, hazard remittance, recruiting of more medical care laborers and committed healthcare offices per region for the individuals who contract Covid-19 while on the job.
"The nurses are the emergency clinics; the nurses are the medical care framework. We are the focal sensory system of the medical clinic and there is no medical clinic that can work when the focal sensory system has separated," the SG said.
