Mercy Mwangangi: 6-month-old baby tests positive as Kenya’s Covid19 cases rises to 490.

Kenya has recorded 25 news cases bringing a total of 490 positive cases with 173 recovered cases and 24 fatalities with the youngest patient being 6 months. Of these new cases, 15 are from Nairobi and 10 from Mombasa. The CAS, Mercy Mwangangi insisted that Covid19 is still very serious and Kenyans should continue to practice social distancing.

According to the Health CAS, the issue of the Mbagathi escapees is being handled by a multidisciplinary team with only 4 of those who escaped from the facility having being rearrested. The tracing of contacts is a scientific issue which is being handled by the ministry of health experts and those who escaped may not cause any direct danger to the public.

35 quarantine centers have been closed in Nairobi but the figures keep changing due to the dynamic state of Covid19. Kenya has started to evacuate Kenyan citizens from abroad especially those in China and India who will be quarantined for 14 days. The Inspector General is reported to have an arrangement of punishing those who break curfews rather than putting them in quarantine facilities.

The CAS has advised the public to turn out for testing and warned the public that things are not back to normal and people should avoid crowding in hotels and other public facilities.

Kenya as a nation must have a serious address on the lives and conditions of those living in refugee camps and as the CAS promised, there should be collaboration with international partners like United Nations. Other issues that require urgent attention include food distribution to the poor Kenyans and remuneration of healthcare workers who have promised to down their tools.
