In the last 24 hours, Kenya has recorded 30 new positive cases of Covid 19 pandemic bringing the total number of positive cases to 465. The results were announced by Health Chief Administration Secretary (CAS) Dr. Rashid Aman in a press briefing on May 3rd 2020.
Dr. Rashid further announced that Kenya has 15 new recoveries tallying to a total of 167 recoveries. At the same time, 2 more patients succumbed totaling to 24 fatalities; out of the 30 new Covid 19 cases, 23 were males, while 7 are females ranging between 4 years to 64 years.
Out of the confirmed positive cases, 19 were from Mombasa County, 8 from Nairobi County, 2 from Bungoma County and 1 from Kitui County. Mombasa County continues to be the most affected county in the country recording the highest number of Covid 19 positive cases. Bungoma is the latest county to be affected by the pandemic in the country bringing in the total number of counties affected to 16.
The Kenyan government has also noted that most citizens are taking the pandemic with a casual attitude which explains why the numbers are increasing on a daily basis. Most eateries were noted to not observing social distancing of 1.5 meters per table and were breaking the allowed operating hours of between 5am to 4pm. The government warned the restaurants that are not respecting social distancing and operating hours will be denied permit and closed down.
Kenyans found breaking the nation-wide curfew hours of 5am-7pm will be held in ‘curfew breakers holding space’ as opposed to the previous existing isolation centers. The curfew breakers will then be forcefully quarantined for 14 days, undergo mandatory tests, and later be released based on their test results.
