(KDRTV)-Kenya has reported the highest number of coronavirus infections in day as 213 more people contract the virus in the last 24 hours.
However, the highest number of infections was expected after the country tested 6,024, the highest number of samples tested in a day.
The national tally of Covid-19 patients has now risen to 4,257.
According to the Health Ministry Chief Administrative Secretary (CAS) Dr. Rashid Aman, 10 more patients succumbed to the respiratory disease bringing the total number of fatalities to 117
At the same time, the CAS announced that 106 more patients have been released from various health facilities after recovering from the disease raising the total number of recoveries to 1459
The new cases were distrusted as follows;
- Taita Taveta-2
According to the CAS, many Kenyans like those in Nairobi and Mombasa are not observing the imposed Health guidelines to halt the spread of the novel virus and thus high rate of infections
“We have seen that in the past several weeks, people have become lax in terms of observing the measures that we have put out… We have a hidden enemy that is lurking in our midst. We are appealing very strongly to all Kenyans that we are at a stage where we need to be very vigilant and strictly observe those containment measures,” said Dr. Aman.
Kenyans are now wondering whether schools will reopen in September as had been announced by the government earlier even though the country continue to report increased rates of infections
