Cases rising, reopening Kenya or not?

New record in 24 hours: 389 cases, 5 deaths

05-07-2020 by redazione

The number of cases is increasing, the 400 positives are close to zero in just 24 hours and now the reopening of the country and flights, which, according to rumors increasingly insistent until yesterday, President Kenyatta should announce tomorrow Monday, July 6, could even postpone again, as well as the end of the curfew. 
It was Health Minister Mutahi Kagwe who confirmed on the afternoon of Saturday 4 July, 389 new cases of Covid-19 in the country, bringing the total number of cases registered so far to 7,577.
Positive swabs were detected by 4289 people. Only three are foreign nationals, all the others are Kenyan.
266 of the positive cases are male, while 123 are female. The youngest infected is 1 year old and the oldest is 93.
It has been announced that 88 patients have been released from hospitals, bringing the total number of cured patients to 2,236.
However, 5 patients have also died (yesterday the Ministry declared that 19 patients with Covid-19 are in serious condition). Now the total has risen to 159, making Kenya the 73rd country in the world for deaths.
Almost two thirds of the cases were registered in Nairobi (248), the others in Kajiado 36, Kiambu 27, Mombasa 23, Busia17, Machakos10, Migori 9, Kitui 6, Makueni 3, Uasin Gishu 3, Nakuru and Kilifi 2, Garissa, Muranga and Narok 1 case.
In the Capital the cases this time are well distributed throughout the city, in Kilifi County the cases come from Kaloleni and the Capital. 
"From the statistics - said Minister Kagwe - is indicative that we have already lost too many lives. We cannot afford to lose any more. We must therefore, as a nation, renew our commitment to observe the containment measures, without which this disease could easily invade our health facilities". The statement sounds to the public opinion as a stance against the reopening of the country, which is demanded by many quarters and is considered imminent, especially to bring the economy back to the surface in great crisis.
Last Friday, Minister of Tourism Najib Balala went on patrol to Nairobi's Jomo Kenyatta International Airport to see preparations for the reopening of the facility and at least national flights are expected. But will the Government reopen the capital with these numbers?
