Kenya through the Ministry of Health headed by Mutahi Kagwe confirmed the first case of covid-19 in mid-March last year. Since then, more than 229,628 people have tested positive for the virus across the country.
According to the data that has been posted on official Twitter and Facebook accounts by the Ministry, today 619 individuals have been confirmed to have contracted the disease in the last 24 hours. This is from a sample size of 4,647. The positivity rate has risen to 13.3%.
Bad News to Kenyans is the death toll keeps going up every. Today 31 additional patients have succumbed to the disease. This has pushed the cumulative fatalities to 4,528.
In my view, it will be important if all Kenyans decide to embrace the vaccination exercise. At the same time, they should follow the set measures and guidelines meant to contain the spread.
