The residents are using urine from a female cattle to disinfect their hands after the Ministry of Health issued a number of directives on how to keep the virus at bay.
Mr Lokoliok Losike, a herder at Oropoi village near the Kenya- Uganda-South Sudan, said that cattle urine especially, from a cow is believed to work as a disinfectant.
Mr Losike said that they have used cattle urine to wash hands due to scarcity of water.
When there is no water, we use urine from the cattle," Mr Losike said.
On Thursday, when Turkana Governor Josphat Nanok was receiving a donation comprising sanitisers and facemasks from the United High Commissioner for Refugees, he confirmed that cattle urine is used in remote places where water is scarce.
