Fewer swabs, fewer Covid-19 positives.
In recent weeks, the percentage of infections compared to the tests carried out is more or less always the same, i.e. just over 3%, while the total percentage is still reassuring 1%.
Yesterday's numbers, Friday 19 June, also confirm this trend, with 117 cases out of 3043 swabs analyzed in the last 24 hours.
This was announced by the Chief Administrative Secretary of Kenyan Health, Dr. Rashid Abdi Aman, at the now famous (for those who follow us) daily press conference held at the headquarters of the Ministry of Health, Afya House in Nairobi.
"The total number of cases of Covid-19 virus positivity in the country has thus risen to 4374 - announced Abdi Aman - while the number of tests carried out reaches the figure of 433,541.
