Thursday, May 21, 2020 – Health Cabinet Secretary, Mutahi Kagwe, has confirmed 80 new cases of coronavirus, bringing the total number of infections to 1,109.
Mutahi said out of 80 cases, 41 are from Nairobi County and 20 from Mombasa county.
Seven other cases are from Siaya County and the contacts were traced back to a mourner who travelled from Kibera in Nairobi.
Kibera registered 13 cases on Thursday while Westlands recorded 8 cases.
9 people have since been discharged bringing the total number of recoveries to 375.
Fatalities still stand at 50 as there have been no deaths over the last 24 hours.
“This war cannot be won by the Government alone but by all individuals following rules,” Kagwe said in his daily briefing.
He thanked all those who have come out to be tested in the targeted high-risk areas such as Old Town in Mombasa and Eastleigh in Nairobi.
Meanwhile, Health Director General, Dr Amoth, has said that they project that Kenya’s Covid-19 peak will hit in September and urged Kenyans to maintain social distancing and all other directives.
“According to our current modelling, we project our peak will be around August-September where we will be reporting about 200 cases per day,” Amoth said.
