Kenya has registered a new 124 COVID-19 cases in the last 24 hours after testing 2,640 samples raising the number of confirmed cases in the country to 2,340 in total according to Health CS Mutahi Kagwe.

The 2,640 samples tested in the last 24 hours increase the total number of samples tested in Kenya since the first case of COVID-19 was reported to 87,698.

The 124 COVID-19 cases announced today include 119 Kenyans, 2 Somalia nationals, 2 Tanzanians, and one Eritrean national and exclude truck drivers tested on the boarders and forced to return to their respective countries.

The 124 COVID-19 cases announced today, 4th June 2020, are spread across the country as follows according to Health CS Mutahi Kagwe:

Mombasa – 40

Nairobi – 38

Busia -26

Kajiado -6

Garissa-2

Elgeyo Marakwet -1

Elgeyo Marakwet has become the latest county to report a COVID-19 case in Kenya increasing the number of counties infected to 36 out of the 47 counties.

Kibra continues to worryingly increase the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases and leads Nairobi today with 38 cases in 24 hours while Kamkunji follows closely at 25 cases though the cases are from quarantine centers in the areas according to Health CS Mutahi Kagwe.

Mvita remains top in the COVID-19 cases reported in 24 hours and leads Mombasa county in the number of cases at 14 joined by Kisauni at a similar number and closely followed by Changamwe which has reported 11 COVID-19 cases according to Health CS Mutahi Kagwe.

The 124 COVID-19 cases announced today include a high of 100 males and 24 females with men continually seeming to be most exposed to the virus for reasons yet to be understood according to Health CS Mutahi Kagwe.

Kenya has reported an increase

The Busia cases, Health CS Mutahi Kagwe, has expressed concern saying they have spiked following an increase of truck drivers who are failing to test before embarking on their journey and hence carrying the virus to the county.

“In the last few weeks, we have witnessed a rise in the number of truck drivers testing positive for COVID-19 and as it has previously been announced, all truck drivers must be tested and have a certificate, it is unfortunate that truck drivers are coming all the way to the border and causing a backlog as they wait to be tested,” Health CS Mutahi Kagwe has said.
