Kenya has registered an additional 52 positive COVID-19 cases with 8 being in Kibra constituency according to the health CS Mutahi Kagwe.

The health CS has noted that Kibra is indeed becoming a point of concern with the increase of Covid-19 cases given its high population.

The 52 newly announced COVID-19 cases are from 2,567 samples tested in the last 24 hours raising the total number of samples tested in Kenya to 55,074.

The 52 newly announced cases have brought the total number of confirmed COVID-19 cases to 1,161.

Nairobi continues to lead with the number of COVID-19 cases today announced by the Health CS Mutahi Kagwe to be at 23 cases.

Mombasa County follows with a drop of COVID-19 cases being at seven while Busia cases also rise to 7 in 24 hours according to health CS Mutahi Kagwe.

Busia County is reported to be also a county that needs to be on high alert because of truck drivers.

Mombasa residents have been urged by the Health CS Mutahi Kagwe to take the sick to hospitals to avoid people dying at home.

The Health CS has noted that Kenyans should not be afraid to seek Healthcare services in hospitals as there are specific hospitals in each county set to handle COVID-19 cases.

CS Mutahi Kagwe also noted that the country has added to the number of recoveries after five more people have been discharged from the hospital raising the number of recoveries to 380.

Mutahi Kagwe has also noted that the Ministry of Health has trained 11,000 health workers in the country, all coming from various counties, on COVID-19.

The training of health workers according to CS Kagwe will continue as the country braces for a Spike of Covid-19 cases.
