Kenya continues to record alarming cases of Covid-19 as 143 more people tested positive taking the total tally to 1,888.

The 143 positive cases were out of the 2259 samples tested where all the patients were Kenyan citizens of ages one month to 88 years.

Sadly, one more patient has succumbed to the virus taking the total fatalities to 63. The deceased was a 59-year-old male.

The number of recoveries has also risen by 26 to 464 in total.

The ministry has also noted that more males are getting infected by the virus where 110 men tested positive out of the 143 who tested positive today as compared to women who were only 33.

Nairobi continues to record more cases as 86 of the total cases tested today came from the Country’s capital, while Mombasa followed with 25 cases.

Two cases were reported from Uasin Gishu, six were from Kiambu, 3 from Kwale, Migori reported three, Kajiado one.

Kericho becomes the latest county to report the COVID-19 cases taking the total number of affected counties to 33.

In Sub-counties, Makadara recorded the highest number of Covid-19 cases at 45 while Kibra had 21. This indicates that the informal sectors have been the hotspots where the virus is spreading faster. The Government said it is focusing more on these sectors.

Today, Saturday, May, 30 marks 79 days since the first Covid-19 case was reported in the country.

We shall overcome and bounce back even stronger than we were before. Said CAS Rashid Aman during the 73rd Covid-19 briefing by the Ministry of Health adding that “A lot more needs to be done by all of us to flatten the virus’ curve.”

The CAS argues that there is no magic bullet that can be used to kill the virus urging Kenyans to continue being vigilant, maintain proper hygiene while adhering to the rules set out by the Government to curb the spread of the virus.
