“In the last 24 hours, we have tested more than 300 samples majority of whom were in quarantine after traveling into the country and out of those, 22 have tested positive for Coronavirus,” Mutahi Kagwe has said noting that Kenya now has a total 81 confirmed coronavirus cases.

“Out of the 22 that have tested positive for coronavirus in the last 24 hours, 13 of them are males and 9 are females,” CS Mutahi Kagwe has announced.

Out of the 22 that have tested positive, 21 of them are among those that were in quarantine after having traveled into the country and placed under quarantine for 14 days according to Health CS Kagwe.

“Out of the 22 who have tested positive to coronavirus, one is in Mombasa hospital,” the Health CS has announced.

“810 Italians have died, 812 in Spanish have died as a result of coronavirus, we cannot emphasize enough to Kenyans of what is ahead of us so adhere to the rules we are insisting on to help combat coronavirus,” the Health CS.

“It knows no boundaries, not nationals or rich and poor,” the Health CS has said urging Kenyans to adhere to the set-out measures strictly.

” I would also like to urge our leaders, don’t speak in a manner that will be decisive in a time when the country is fighting a crisis,” Mutahi Kagwe has said referring to politicians who are taking advantage of the coronavirus outbreak in Kenya to gain political mileage.
