Covid-19 pandemic has continued to ravage the country causing havoc in all sectors of economy. The virus has devastated families and communities as result of increase in the rate of infections and number of fatalities.
Today, Kenya is still fighting fourth wave of Covid-19 infections. However, the rate of Covid-19 infections has continued to go down with country recording less positivity rate of less than 5% in past one week.
Today, ministry of health has reported 77 new cases of Covid-19 infections from a sample size of 2,415. This had raised total confirmed cases to 250,191. The country has recorded a positivity rate 3.2 percent.
This is good news to kenya ahead of Mashujaa Day Celebration this year. Decreased positivity rate is attributed to vaccination drive that is going on in the country. According to the ministry of health, government is targeting to vaccinate atleast 10 million kenyans at the end of the year.
With reduced positivity rate, there is hope that president Uhuru Kenyatta will consider reopening economy fully to allow kenyans continue with their normal life.
