CORONAVIRUS

Virus, even Kenya waits for a second wave

Few serious cases, but number and test rising

08-10-2020 by redazione

In Kenya, as in most countries around the world, a second wave of the virus is on its way. Although the cases are not as serious and daily deaths rarely exceed ten, with an asymptomatic rate that remains stable at around 93%, the Government is urging people not to let their guard down and continues to send hundreds of patients, declared cured, back home or away from home care.
Yesterday, there was a record discharge, with more than 4000 citizens who stopped receiving treatment and were declared immune.
In the meantime, however, cases are growing again on the coast, thanks to the lack of respect for elementary rules in order not to spread Covid-19: no more masks (very few wear them among Kenyans) and little respect for social distances.
According to the health services of Mombasa and Kilifi County, the cases will grow and even serious situations could clog up the hospitals and fill the few intensive care places.
Health Minister Mutahi Kagwe, announcing yesterday's data for Wednesday 7 October (321 cases out of 4342 swabs analyzed, with a percentage that rises well above guard levels) warned that in the coming days the numbers will rise, as more than 150 thousand swabs will be put into the national laboratory circuit. "These new kits will increase our testing capacity while we continue to fight Covid-19 disease," said Health Administration Director Rashid Aman, "We also have another 300,000 kits on the way which, hopefully, we will receive before we run out of stock. As we predicted, there are 4,328 cured patients, which significantly reduces the number of active cases in the country to 8,500, which is the same as last July's figures.
In the last 24 hours there have been five deaths from Covid-19, bringing the total number of virus deaths to 748.
As always, Nairobi has the majority of new positives (109) followed by Nakuru.
On the coast there were 31 cases in Mombasa, 8 in Kilifi County (not in Malindi in this case) and one in Lamu, for a total of 40.
