More and more Kenyans positive for Covid-19 are being treated at home and cured.
Yesterday, the Ministry of Health, transmitting daily data on the pandemic emergency, confirmed that in just 24 hours, as many as 500 people who had contracted the virus and were following the treatment program at home were declared cured after control swabs. A further 87 patients were discharged from the hospital where they were admitted, but their symptoms were not serious.
"The success of our home care has allowed us to use more resources to treat patients who need specific care in hospital," said Dr. Rashid Abdì Aman of the Ministry of Health, "doctors can focus on them without being overworked. Managing the disease by releasing resources is our main containment goal.
It's worth remembering that in Kenya only eight percent of positive cases have medium to severe symptoms and the average number of people admitted to intensive care does not reach one percent.
Yesterday, Tuesday 4 August, the country registered 605 new cases out of 4,547 samples tested in the previous 24 hours. The total number of positives rose to 23,202 out of 322,923 samples tested since March 13. 27 of the new cases belong to foreign nationals living in Kenya. There are 6 patients who did not make it and bring the total number of deaths with Covid-19 to 388.
In Nairobi 373 cases have been reported and in nearby Kiambu 35.
The land borders with Tanzania (Migori and Kajado Counties, 41 cases) and Uganda (Busia 20) continue to be "hot" and controlled. On the coast only 10 cases, 9 in Mombasa and one in Kilifi. With the discovery of 8 infected in the Samburu region, the last "Covid-19 Free" County of Kenya also falls out of 47.
