Kenya has registered an increase in the number of fatalities after two more people have succumbed to COVID-19 raising the numbers to 17 according to the Health CAS Dr. Rashid Aman.

Delivering the COVID-19 updates for Kenya on 30th April 2020, Health CAS has also revealed that Kenya has also added into the number for infections after 12 new cases have been registered to raise the number to 396.

Dr.Rashid Aman CAS Health has said that seven of the 12 new Covid-19 cases are from Mombasa, three from Nairobi,  one from Wajir, and one from Kitui County.

The Nairobi cases are from Eastleigh, Fedha, and Kileleshwa with Health CAS Rashid Aman terming the month of April as having been a difficult month.

The youngest new COVID-19 case in Kenya in the last 24 hours is one-and-a-half years old with males being 9 and three females.

The 12 new cases are from 777 samples tested in the last 24 hours with 20,268 tests that have been done since Kenya registered its first COVID-19 case on the 13th of March 2020.

A total of 15 new discharges were recorded, bringing the number of recoveries to 144 in total with Dr. Rashid saying, “..as we cross into the month, let us strengthen our resolve against the virus… We will not allow any distractions…We are faced with realities about the trajectory the disease will take.”

The EAC has agreed on a protocol to ease traffic at the borders which will involve facilitating the testing of drivers in an efficient way while not impeding the flow of trucks across the border.

The ministry will issue a detailed report on the use of World Bank funds following the reports we have seen on different media platforms.
