The swabs analysed until the afternoon of Sunday 14 June were 3167, and the cases included 102 men and 35 women, all Kenyan citizens. The youngest is a one-year-old boy and the oldest is 82 years old. The total number of cases therefore rose to 3594. There are 2238 cases still active in the country.

Most of the cases found come from the capital Nairobi (92), while Mombasa has 16, Kajiado, 15, Busia and Kiambu, four (4), one positive each have the counties of Kilifi, Nakuru, Nyamira, Uasin Gishu, Siaya and Muranga,
In addition, Nyeri County registered 9 people who tested positive for Covid-19, three of whom are health workers.
"These workers contracted the virus in the performance of their duties," said Kagwe, "here at Othaya Hospital in Nyeri.
The hospital in Nyeri was chosen for a Ministry pilot project that will monitor the relationship between Covid-19 and past diseases such as cancer, heart disease and stroke.
"People living with non-communicable diseases are more at risk of contracting Coronavirus than those without it," recalled the Minister, who was accompanied by several officials to assess the preparedness of Othaya's Level 6 hospital, run by Kenyatta National Hospital (KNH). Among the leaders attending the event were Governor of Nyeri Mutahi Kahiga, Deputy Governor Caroline Karugu, Murang'a Sabina Chege women's representative, Congressman Kieni Kanini Kega, government spokesman Cyrus Oguna, Health Director General Patrick Amoth and the Minister of Technology and Communications Joe Mucheru.
