The weekend offers few positive news regarding the pandemic emergency.
On the one hand, the percentage of positive cases compared to tampons is rising again, to almost 15%, but on the other hand, deaths do not fall. There are 17 official cases in the last 24 hours.
Among these, another doctor and analysing them in local newspapers and blogs reveals problems with places in intensive care, shortages of drugs and oxygen in various parts of the country. In Eldoret County, for example, a well-known health care worker died of a respiratory crisis following the infection as he was unable to access the first treatment in time, both in his County and in nearby Uasin Gishu. The transport to Nairobi was late.
Problems of public health management are also increasing on the coast, especially in the field of the swab analysis process. The main machinery that processes the tests and gives the results in Mombasa, as reported by the Daily Nation, broke down last Friday and has not yet been repaired or replaced. So many buffers are waiting and others have gone to flood Kilifi's already loaded laboratory.
If the situation persists, public help will be needed to buy the tubes and also the sticks for oral detection of the virus. As soon as we have the details of what is needed and can proceed with the order, we will inform you and start raising funds for this further emergency.
Yesterday, Sunday 22 November, the Ministry of Health announced 968 new cases out of 6610 swabs analysed. The number of foreign patients who have contracted Covid-19 rose, yesterday they were almost 9% of the total (80). The total number of cases in the country thus rises to 77,372.
The number of patients cured of the Coronavirus was low, yesterday there were only 155, of which 45 from national hospitals and 110 from home care. The only non-negative figure is that the number of patients admitted to intensive care fell by 4, yesterday there were 63.
As for the breakdown by County, Nairobi recorded 421 cases, Mombasa 91, Kilifi 88 (but as said not in Malindi), Busia 73, Kiambu 54, Kajiado 30, Nakuru 22 and Uasin Gishu 21.
