“Mombasa and Turkana counties, that were on a downward trend, have begun to shoot up in COVID-19 positive cases. While this might seem like a surge, we have set up a team to find out why that is happening,” the medic said.
Despite the fact that the coronavirus curve has been flattening, Director-general Health Patrick Amoth warned that Kenya is yet to win the battle; he also revealed that Kenya`s recovery is at 64 %
Our recovery rate is at 64% compared to the global rate at 72%. Our reporting rate is lower than the global as we have to get data from the community level thus the lag. 486 patients are in various health facilities and 1,681 others under home-based care for COVID-19.
The number of patients in our health facilities, the resilience of the healthcare system, the number of critical care cases will inform the positivity rate. Today we have 22 people in critical care, 15 on ventilatory support and seven on supplementary oxygen,” said Amoth.
