Health CS, Dr Mutahi Kagwe
The question of when the restrictions that were put by the president on 26th March should be removed remains unanswered following the current Covid 19 situation. However, today's Covid 19 updates by the ministry of health's cabinet secretary indicates that Kenyans may be eased from the restrictions sooner. Schools on the other hand are expecting a decline of positivity rates up to a point that the country may be declared safe for them to resume as scheduled.
Dr Mutahi Kagwe has announced that from four thousand, one hundred and ninety four (4,194) samples that were successfully tested for Covid 19 infections over the past 24 hours, only four hundred and sixty nine (461) turned positive. With that, a positivity rate of 11.2% was recorded. This is a low rate as compared to the records of yesterday. Kenyans are now happy with the decline as hopes of reopening of schools and removal of the restrictions are boosted.
The ministry of health has also confirmed that three hundred and four (304) people have recovered over the past 24 hours. This is a clear indication that the containment measures including vaccination are really effective.
