Highest number of positives today in Kenya

184 in a day, now the country starts to be afraid

17-06-2020 by redazione

Fewer tampons, many more positive cases, now Kenya is really starting to be afraid of Covid-19.
The Chief Administrative Secretary of Kenyan Health Rashid Abdi Aman has just released the data of the newly infected, collected from 2518 swabs carried out in the last 24 hours, between Tuesday, June 16 and this morning.
The positives are 184, a record high number compared to the past, especially as a percentage of the tests done. 
A figure that is as disturbing as the cases of the capital Nairobi in a single day, which constitute a negative record: 111.
The total number of cases of Covid-19 in Kenya since the emergency began has exceeded 4000 units (they are exactly 4044), the swabs carried out were 124,474. They are still affected by Coronavirus 2584 people, 90% of whom have mild symptoms or none at all.
The cases detected belong to 183 Kenyan citizens and one foreigner, while 129 of them are male and 55 female.
As said, Nairobi leads the unhappy ranking with 111 cases (33 of these from the Westland commercial district, 19 from the Kibera slum), followed by Mombasa with 19, Kajiado County with 14, Meru County with 13, Kiambu 9, Busia 6, Nakuru 4 and for the first time Vihiga, which becomes the 40th county out of 47 to have at least one confirmed case.
There are 27 patients discharged in the last 24 hours, bringing the total number of healings to 1353, while unfortunately two other patients have succumbed to the disease. The number of deaths thus rises to 107.
"Unfortunately we point out that cases are rising since we also use PCR tests in real time - explains Aman - while other diagnostic kits that are on the market are not reliable, so be wary of GDR tests, for example, but demand those approved by the Ministry of Health".
