In the daily coronavirus briefing conducted by Cabinet health secretary Mutahi Kagwe, 11 persons have tested positive bringing the total number of confirmed cases to 374 in the country. In today’s cases, there are two children aged three years, and the oldest is 75 years.
Out of the 11 cases, seven (7) are from Nairobi and four (4) from Mombasa. Of the seven Nairobi cases, four are cases are from Kawangware and one from Eastleigh, Manji Estate, and Kaloleni. All four cases from Mombasa are from Kibokoni (Old Town).
The CS has urged residents from these areas to take extra measures to avoid contracting the virus. The trend in positive cases in the last few days has been restricted to Nairobi and Mombasa which is indicating increased local transmission in the two counties.
Contact tracing has therefore been enhanced by the surveillance and infection control management in Mombasa and Nairobi while the rest of the counties have been strongly advised to observe the containment measures.
It is important to note that ten (10) patients were discharged which brings the total number of the recoveries to 124 which a very encouraging development.
