Ministry of health and Kenyans has been fighting the war against Covid-19 for long now. However the Country has not yet reached a point where the Ministry of health can declare it free from Covid-19, following consistent increase in positivity rate in the past weeks.
Today the Ministry of health in a statement confirmed that five hundred and eighty nine people tested positive to the disease in last 24 hours representing a positivity rate of 11.8 per cent. This has elicited mixed Reactions among Kenyans who argued that the Country Should be put under lockdown exspecially Kisumu where the rate of Covid-19 infections has really gone up.
According to World Health Organization (WHO) on Covid-19 containment measures, affected Country should operate normally after achieving less than 5 per cent in positivity rate for two consecutive weeks which has not been achieved. This no calls for immediate action by the National Government to help save lives of Kenyans through lockdown or early curfews mostly in places where we have witnessed a consistent increase in Covid-19 infections.
Unfortunately death toll rose to 3,345 following the death 19 patients in the last 24 hours. We still ask Kenyans adhere to Ministry of health protocols and help the government in fighting this deadly disease.
