Highest cases yesterday in Kilifi County

Could Malindi be a new possible hotspot?

11-10-2020 by redazione

Yesterday, Saturday 10 October, set a record number of cases reached by Kilifi County in terms of positivity at Covid-19.
This is certainly a sign of the increase in swabs, but also of the inevitable certainty that even the northern coast of Kenya, and precisely the districts of Malindi and Magarini, are not exempt from the "crown".
Eleven cases have been reported in the town and as many as 18 in the Mambrui area and inland, plus two in Kaloleni for a total of 31 cases in the whole County of Kilifi which, as far as the region is concerned, add to the 38 in Mombasa and start to worry about possible new outbreaks.
The data were confirmed by the Ministry of Health of Kenya during the usual afternoon bulletin which revealed a surge also at national level, with 538 cases out of 6872 swabs analyzed, so with a still very high percentage (7.8%) compared to the last days of curfew and other restrictions that fluctuated between 3 and 5%.
In addition to Nairobi, which always leads the unpleasant rankings (yesterday 157 cases), there was a large "hotspot" in an area of Bungoma County: 118 infected people.
While it was to be expected, with the increase in swabs distributed to all the hospitals in the counties, probably not even the Government expected an increase in percentages at these levels.
It will have to take these numbers into account and in fact, stricter controls have already begun on the use of masks and premises that do not comply with government directives.
Patients discharged from home care programmes and hospitals throughout the country are also falling. Yesterday there were only 61, bringing the total number of healings to 30,937.
Another five patients lost their lives after contracting the disease, bringing the total number of deaths to 760.
