Coronavirus Cases Rise To 38 in Kenya
The number of people in Kenya who have verified positive for the Covid-19 disease has risen to 38, the Ministry of Health said Saturday.
Health Cabinet Secretary Mutahi Kagwe said seven more people had tested positive for the new coronavirus.
They are four Kenyans, two Congolese and a Chinese citizen.
CS Kagwe proclaimed that Nairobi was still foremost in the number of cases with 28, followed by Kilifi with six, Mombasa with two and Kwale and Kajiado with one each.
“The tendency we have seen on cumulative numbers is not a healthy one,” he said, and repeated the need for members of the public to follow to measures the government has taken to control spread of the virus.
The president last week said that the rules that are put in place must be adhered to and if one fails to meet with the terms will be jailed for a term not less than 3 years.
The government has tried all what it can to curb the virus but some of the Kenyans see it as they are being hindered from achieving their day to day life.
The government now it seams to increase the frequency of the rules so as to control the virus.
