Kenya, highest number of Covid-19 recoveries

54 in the last 24 hours, more cases at the borders

It is the highest number of healed patients in Kenya, on the day when cases of Covid-19 positivity return above one hundred, on the strength of the truck drivers at the border with Uganda.
As reported by the Administrative Secretary of the Ministry of Health, Abdi Aman, on Wednesday 3 June, 54 people were discharged, bringing the number of those who recovered from the coronavirus to 553.
"I want to pay tribute to our health workers - said Abdi Aman at the usual press conference at Afya House - in celebrating this success, I want to reiterate the importance of observing the containment measures".
In the last 24 hours the Health Department has carried out 2216 swabs, detecting 123 positive people. A percentage that returns to be high, despite the fact that the swabs have all been targeted for a few weeks, and brings the total number of cases recorded in the country from March 13 to today to 2216, of which 1589 are still active. A high percentage of these have always been asymptomatic.
90 of the cases reported are male and 33 female, while the distribution by age is between 8 and 84 years.
On the highlight day of the healed, there were also three deaths and also the death of the youngest Kenyan citizen: a 12-year-old boy hospitalized and died of other complications but whose posthumous swab gave the verdict of positivity to Covid-19. The other two who succumbed to the pandemic are 41 and 84 years old respectively.
The distribution of cases by county is as follows: Nairobi (44), Mombasa (34), Busia (20), Uasin Gishu (12), Kiambu (3), Kajiado (3), Nyeri (3), Kilifi (2) while Garissa and Laikipia recorded one case each. In Nairobi the slum of Kibera continues to be under control, where 10 cases have been recorded, while in Mombasa under pressure are always the Old City and Likoni.
Aman closed the briefing by taking it out on the citizens who are leading a normal life as if nothing had happened and on those who apply the decrees in their own way.
"There is no point in walking around with a mask under your chin," said the Administrative Secretary of Health, "and not giving a damn about social distances. I'm sure you've seen all those social media videos showing people crowding into public places in disguise. That's flirting with danger".
Waiting for President Kenyatta's statement on whether or not the curfew will end and on the new measures that the country will adopt after June 6, the position of health workers and managers is still the same: containment and enforcement of restrictive rules.
