On the day of Kenya's first officially vaccinated citizen, Kenya still has a fairly high incidence rate of Covid-19 positive cases per swab.
The first AstraZeneca vaccine from the batch that arrived in Nairobi last Wednesday was yesterday injected into Kenya's number one volunteer, Director General of Health Patrick Amoth, who is also WHO's top contact person for Kenya.
Everything went well," Amoth told the press, "two slight side effects may be heaviness in the arms and a slight headache.
After him, other managers and health workers underwent the vaccine and will be put on the list for the recall.
Meanwhile, in the last 24 hours, the number of infections has risen to 400 out of 5,189 swabs taken, a rate of 7.7 per cent, the highest in a fortnight.
The total number of infections almost a year after the first one was recorded in Kenya is now 107 729, of which 87 176 have already recovered, with 77 discharged yesterday from hospitals or home care programmes.
There have been three official deaths, bringing the total number of victims of the virus in the country to 1 873.
The current situation of the sick is that 1,615 are in home care programmes, while 494 people are in domestic facilities.
Of those admitted, 67 are in intensive care units (ICUs), 24 of them with ventilatory support, 35 with supplementary oxygen and eight under observation. Another 17 patients are also on supplementary oxygen, but all of them are in general medical wards.
