Covid-19 variant in Kenya, 100 in isolation

Good percentages even after bar reopening

08-05-2021 by redazione

The effects of the reopening of lockdown counties and bars will probably be seen in one, maximum two weeks.
For now, however, the percentage of cases per swab in Kenya remains reassuring.
Even yesterday a comforting 6.3% was recorded. 
Health Minister Mutahi Kagwe, speaking at Nyeri Hospital, confirmed 568 new cases in the country against 9,029 swabs taken in the last 24 hours.
There are only 17 foreigners among them, which bodes well for the limited presence of Indian variant cases, after the first eight, including five Indian nationals who arrived for work the day before Kenya closed its borders with India, were put into isolation in Kisumu, where they worked for a sugar mill.
Yesterday it was confirmed that about a hundred other people had come into contact with the first eight and that all of them had been placed in isolation. Between today and tomorrow we should know the results of the swabs and understand if there was an outbreak in the company on Lake Victoria.
In the meantime, the number of deaths in the last few hours has risen to 10, in addition to another five late reports. This brings the death toll to 2865.
A further 173 patients have recovered. 130 from home and isolation care and 43 from various health facilities. The total number of recoveries is now 110,653.
1,086 patients remain in various hospitals, while 6,381 are being treated at home.
131 patients are in the intensive care unit, 28 on ventilators and 83 on supplementary oxygen.
Regarding vaccines, Minister Kagwe announced a final distribution to counties that are running out of doses, to prevent them from expiring. Those who feel they have already completed the first round, because no one has turned up for days, will put their doses back into circulation to be distributed to those who still have requests.
