Coronavirus infection commenced in China in Wuhan City in late 2019. The illness led to thousands of demises in China before it dissipated to other nations. So far, data collected every day by Johns Hopkins University suggests that more than 208,613,680 people have been confirmed infected globally with casualties rising to 4,453,844.
Kenya has been attempting to thwart the virus since the initial case was documented in mid-March last year(2020). According to the data from the Ministry of Health headed by Mutahi Kagwe, a record of 228,363 infections have been confirmed from the total tests of 2,305,298.
Today, 1286 additional infections have been recorded from a sample size of 8,310 tested in the last 24 hours. The positivity rate stands at 15.5 per cent. What is bothering is that deaths from this virus continue rising every day. Today another 26 people have perished raising the death toll to 4,404.
Recall that in the last two weeks Nairobi County has been dominating in terms of cases. Today it led with 258, Makueni 111 and Kiambu 117.
In my conclusion, the Ministry of Health should suppose of inflicting lockdown restrictions in Nairobi, Mombasa, Kiambu and Nakuru to curb the further spread. If the spike will go on then the country's hospitals might be devastated.
