Last Covid-19 bulletin: 14 deaths in Kenya

Lower percentage, but MOH says to be careful

Another 14 deaths related to the Covid-19 virus in Kenya, compared with 727 positives in the last 24 hours.
These are relevant data from the latest coronavirus emergency bulletin issued by the Ministry of Health of Kenya yesterday, Friday, August 7.
The swabs analyzed were 6814, so there is a slight decrease in the percentage of infected compared to the tests carried out, 10.67% compared to about 12 the day before.
The Kenya Medical Research Centre, which a month ago estimated the spread of Covid-19 in the country at 2.7 million citizens, also revised its projections last Thursday to 1.9 million, a figure that would mean less than 5% of the total number of Kenyans.
In the meantime, however, the count of official positives continues to rise, exceeding 25,000 cases, and also that of deaths, which are now 413.
Fortunately, the number of cured patients and asymptomatic patients followed in the home control program who are no longer affected by the virus is also rising.
549 people were discharged from hospitals and 125 underwent a new swab (which is obviously not counted for statistics purposes) and declared cured, even though they never had symptoms and had observed a period of isolation at home.
"As someone said, these figures repeated every day can be boring," said Health Minister Mutahi Kagwe, "but the most boring thing would be to be forced to stare at the ceiling of a hospital room from a bed. It's better not to want to get there and observe the rules to protect yourself and others.
