Many more healed than new positives and only 2 dead. So Kenya looks at its curve hoping that it will continue to go down and empty the hospital facilities as it has done in recent days.
Yesterday there were 599 positive cases of Covid-19 in the country, bringing the total number of cases in Kenya to 26,436. At the same time, 1,062 patients were discharged from the hospital, bringing the total number of recoveries to 12,961. Percentage of infection compared to swabs tested increased slightly, with 4420 samples being tested.
During the daily briefing of Covid-19 in Kisumu County on Sunday, August 9, Kenyan Health Minister Mutahi Kagwe announced that unfortunately, two patients have surrendered to the disease and bring the total number of deaths to 420.
Kenya's third largest city on Lake Victoria is also more than prepared to receive patients with the virus, with 400 beds in isolation wards and 25 in intensive care units.
The Governor of Kisumu County, Anyang' Nyong'o, also revealed that 2,400 health workers have been trained to manage the Covid-19 emergency.
Kagwe, in praising Kisumu's efforts also to maintain cleanliness and order, especially in markets and kiosks, pointed the finger at reports of corrupt doctors performing false autopsies to give relatives the chance to bury dead with Covid-19 as if they had died from other causes. He urged specialists to always provide specifications on the causes of deaths and to swab after-effects if there is no evidence of other diseases.
"The farewell of a loved one is important for all of us," the Minister said, "but it should not end with more pain or the loss of other lives. Wearing a mask and following government directives is not a favour you do to law enforcement officers, but to yourself and your loved ones.
