Kenya: september opens without Covid-19 deaths

Comforting numbers but WHO warns: "emergency not over"

02-09-2020 by redazione

The first day of September opens with no deaths of Covid-19 in Kenya, while the Kenyan Ministry of Health informs that in the hospital facilities of the country there are only 27 people in critical condition.
The pandemic situation, in short, is rosier than ever in Kenya despite the World Health Organization warns the African nations not to consider the Covid-19 emergency over and to prepare for any upsurge.
In the meantime, however, the Kenyan Government has drastically reduced the use of tampons (even yesterday, just over 1,600 in Nairobi and other counties, with 114 cases detected) and continues to discharge patients declared cured. Yesterday there were 318 cases, bringing the number of cases still active to 13527.
Even the Administrative Secretary of Health, Dr. Rashid Abdi Aman, pulled the brake: "We must not feel out of danger and start to rejoice - said during the usual press conference at Afya House - We must continue with various preventive measures to stop the transmission cycle before declaring that the curve has flattened. We are moving in the right direction anyway".
Regarding the statements of the WHO continental leaders, Abdi Aman admitted that in the urban area of the capital the medical staff of the ministry has some difficulty in tracing relatives and people who have been close to citizens found positive to Covid-19 and this could delay the process of exit from the emergency.
