The government will need 182 billion shillings to feed vulnerable Kenyans for 90 days in case total lockdown is imposed, Oparanya said.
According to a report drafted by the national coordinating committee on Covid-19, the funds will be used to buy and deliver food items to poor Kenyans in both rural and urban centres.
The Council of Governors Chair and a member of the committee Wycliffe Oparanya said the vulnerable have already been mapped out by administration officers in counties in conjunction with Nyumba Kumi cluster members.
On 6th of April, President Uhuru Kenyatta placed the counties of Nairobi, Mombasa, Kilifi and Kwale on partial lockdown, limiting movements of people in these Counties.
The four devolved units account for close to 95 per cent of all reported Covid-19 cases.
Experts believe limiting movement of people in these counties, will help arrest the spread of the pandemic which continues to ravage the global economy and shuttering businesses.
Oparanya warned that if the situations worsen Nairobi and Mombasa counties will be locked down totally.
