The health cabinet secretary Mutahi Kagwe, during his daily briefing on covid-19 situation in the county, hinted that covid-19 vaccines will be arriving in Kenya from Tuesday 2nd March. He added that vaccination process will begin with the front line workers because they are at a higher risk of contracting the virus.
This comes after various companies in the developed countries succeeded in coming up with vaccines to combat corona virus. However, the shipment of the vaccines in the country will only be catering for about 20% of Kenyan population and the rest will have to wait for the next shipment.
During his briefing, he reported that from the 3282 samples tested in the last 24 hours, 325 people tested positive bringing the total number of positive cases to 105,973. At the same time, he reported that two succumbed to the virus bringing death toll to 1856. While there has been an increasing number of covid-19 cases, there is still hope that the virus will be done away with.
