Distribution of Today's Covid-19 Cases in Counties and Sub Counties

The ministry of health has today announced a larger number of Covid-19 cases.

This is bad news to Kenyans as the country may be staring at another Covid-19 crisis. The health experts in the country had warned that there might be a fourth wave of the pandemic in the month of July. This may be the beginning of another wave if Kenyans will not take appropriate action to prevent the spread of the virus.

In the statistics announced today, there were 787 new cases of coronavirus. The ministry of health had conducted testing of 6892 people in twenty four hours. This testing capacity had 11.4 per cent positivity rate.

This is a huge number of cases where by Nairobi County was leading with 338 cases. This is despite the fact that Kenyans have relaxed all the Covid-19 prevention measures.

Kenyans have been holding large gatherings while defying the Covid-19 protocols. Additionally, majority of Kenyans defy wearing of face masks hence exposing themselves to possible infection by the Covid-19 disease.

The transport sector in different parts of the country has also lowered the guard to protect the passengers from Covid-19. This has also exposed many people to the deadly virus.

Cases of the virus have also been reported in schools occasionally which means that more measures need to be put in place to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus disease.

As usual, the government may be forced to put in place more strict measures if the current trend in cases continues to be reported. The State will have no other choice but to enforce the lockdown measures if Covid-19 cases continues to rise.

The cases reported today should be a warning to Kenyans to take more precautionary measures in order to safeguard lives. The cases were spread in the following counties.

In terms of Sub-counties, the cases were distributed in the following areas.
