There are still 194 people left in quarantine from the 2,050 who were in various facilities in Kenya. 126 have tested positive from the 1,876 already tested.
Cabinet Secretary Mutahi Kagwe said in a brief in Nairobi yesterday that the number of positive cases has increased by 126 after addition of more positive cases from the 372 samples that were tested yesterday March 4. There are three Kenyans and one Pakistan national from the four new cases.
“We have registered the lowest number for this week whereby we have confirmed only four new cases, which is somehow encouraging that the number is not increasing,” said the CS.
However, the medical team in Kenya has been instructed to treat those in quarantine like those who have tested positive. Social distancing has been emphasized to all Kenyans and urged that it is the responsibility of everyone to observe that for the sake of one’s life.
