Covid-19 Kenya, situation is not so bad

Number of patients in ICU is not growing

29-08-2021 by redazione

For what it means, in the last 48 hours a significant figure has emerged in Kenya: the percentage of positive cases on swabs taken for the first time since August has fallen below 12 per cent for two consecutive days.
Admissions to the country's intensive care units have remained stable, and this is also a hopeful sign, because the situation has begun to stabilise and despite the poor application of containment measures by the population, there are no major outbreaks of the dreaded 'fourth wave'.
In Kenya, people are dying of many other diseases, as we have always said, but there is a new sensation, that even the pneumonias treated by small dispensaries in the minor districts with affected people who cannot even afford transport to a public hospital, do not seem to be due to Covid-19, because the swabs are now carried out even in the decentralised sites.
While 162 people are still on supplementary oxygen or ventilation, yesterday Health Minister Mutahi Kagwe confirmed that 1,478 people have recovered from the virus, while on the other side of the coin, 28 citizens have died from Coronavirus-related complications, although some of these deaths are late registrations.
Deaths in Kenya from Covid-19 to date stand at 4,294.
Vaccine situation: despite the arrival of new doses, which obviously need to be distributed to health facilities in the country, the vaccination process is still slow. The percentage of those vaccinated has risen by 0.04% in the last 48 hours. The proportion of people fully vaccinated with the two doses has not yet reached 3%.
The rumoured 12 million Johnson & Johnson vaccines are awaited to give a decisive breakthrough to the health security of the population and the confidence of the nations that are demanding that Kenya catch up with the West and resume bilateral relations in a big way.
