Why Mombasa Is Recording Many COVID-19 Cases

Mombasa county has been identified as the county which has been recording most COVID-19 Cases since the onset of this week a situation which has caused fear and panic not only among the residents of Mombasa but the whole country

In the past three days the coastal county has recorded more than 20 new COVID-19 Cases, the county so far has a total of about 67 COVID-19 Cases coming in second to Nairobi county which has a total of 201 Cases

However the increased COVID-19 Cases in Mombasa should not come as a surprise to Kenyans because Mombasa has a lot of risk factors which have made it possible for the county to be the new epicenter of COVID-19

Mombasa county harbours the biggest Port in East Africa which is an entry point for many foreign Nationals thus the increased cases

To add to this, the county is a great tourist attraction centre in Kenya with a range of beautiful hotels located at attractive Sandy beaches thus leading to an increased number of foreign visitors who might have brought the virus to the county

Mombasa residents have also made the matter worse because they have been flaunting the government directive of wearing masks in public places and not practising social distance thus making the virus spread like wild fire in this county

Finally Mombasa is recording a high number of COVID-19 cases due to mass testing which has been rolled out in the county at Kenya Ports Authority which is a possible Corona hotspot thus leading to the increased COVID-19 cases being recorded in the county

Many residents of Mombasa have been alarmed by the increased cases in their county and have urged the government to declare a lockdown in order to curb the spread of the virus further.
