CORONAVIRUS

Kenya, symptomatics are now more than before

Percentage of cases on tests around 10

17-10-2020 by redazione

In Kenya a real "pandemic emergency" has never occurred, but to date it is feared that this was mainly due to the timely closure of the country on 25 March, only 10 days after the first cases of Covid-19 in the country. Lockdown of five regions and curfew, closure of hotels and restaurants for two months and bars until 28 September and still a curfew from 10pm to 4pm.
In spite of this, with the reopening of some schools and bars, the cases have been rising again.
These are not strong viral loads, but from what many Kenyan doctors report, the asymptomaticity has dropped from 93% to 80% in a few days and this is certainly a worrying figure.
It means that now one in five citizens in Kenya is not feeling so good when they contract the virus.
As for the "cold" numbers, Kenya on Friday 16 October recorded 437 positive cases of Covid-19 in the previous 24 hours, bringing the country's total to 43,580 infections.
The swabs analysed were 4,311, so the percentage is around 10%.
Of the positive cases, 430 are Kenyan and 7 foreigners. 253 are male and 184 are female, while the youngest case is a four-month-old infant and the oldest is 95 years old.
At the same time, 140 patients were discharged, 72 of them from the home care programme and 68 from hospitals throughout the country, bringing the total number of cures to 31,648.
Unfortunately, eight patients lost their lives to the disease, bringing the total number of deaths to 813.
In the distribution of cases in the counties, Nairobi leads with 136 cases, followed by Nakuru with 66, and Kilifi 29 of which 25 in the sub-district of Magarini.
