Kenya: Covid-19 cases surge to 607

Number of covid-19 cases in Kenya has surged past 600 mark after 25 more test positive out of 632 samples that were tested in the past 24 hours. This brings the total number of Covid-19 cases to 607.

Health CAS Rashid Aman announced this during the daily Covid-19 briefing on Thursday, May 7, 2020, at Afya House.

Of the 25 cases, 22 are Kenyans, 1 a Ugandan, 1 from Tanzania, and 1 a Chinese national.

The cases are spread across the country as follows; Nairobi recorded 17 cases, 2 from Wajir, 2 from Kajiado, and 1 each from Mombasa, Migori, Isiolo and Nakuru.

Cases in Nairobi are spread as follows; Eastleigh has 9 cases, parklands 1, Juja road 1, Kawangware 2, Umoja 1, South C 1. The 1 case from Mombasa was from Likoni while the single case from Nakuru was from Solai.

Recoveries and Fatalities

On a positive note, the CAS also noted that 7 more patients have been discharged bringing total recoveries to 197.

Unfortunately, health Ministry added that 3 more die of Covid-19 bringing total fatalities in the country so far to 29.

The CAS also noted that people are reluctant to present themselves for testing even after the government announced yesterday that it will cater for both testing and quarantine cost.

He warned members of the public in the locked-down areas of Nairobi’s Eastleigh estate and Mombasa’s Old Town against sneaking away from the regions.

“We have observed that some people have decided to sneak out of Eastleigh and Old Town and relocate to other areas. This move is counter-productive as it promotes spread of the disease into areas where people are moving into,” stated Dr. Aman.
