Kenya is one of the countries that has suffered greatly from the effects of the Coronavirus pandemic. Many have lost their loved ones from the deadly disease while the country's economy has suffered significantly. The government was forced to reintroduced stiff measures once the country started experiencing the third wave of the pandemic.
Today the Ministry of Health announced that 1523 people tested positive for the virus in the last 24 hours after a sample size of 7424 was tested. The sample size increased from yesterday where only two thousand samples were tested.
The Ministry also delivered the sad news to Kenyans reporting that 18 more people lost the battle to the virus in the last 24 hours. More sadly is that the positivity rate shot by 7 percent to 20.5 compared to Tuesday statistics which was 13 percent.
The World Health Organisation always advises that for normal operation to resume across the country, the positivity rate should drop to less than ten percent and specifically to 5 percent when the curve will flatten.
Kenyans are advised to continue adhering to the Ministry of Health guidelines to flatten the curve in the coming months so that normal activities resume.
