Kenya reaches and exceeds 2000 deaths from Covid-19 while the government continues to admit that there are previous cases linked to the deaths that are not immediately reported and are added daily to the total death toll.
The Ministry of Health's official figures for the last 24 hours speak of 747 new positives out of 5,145 swabs analysed, with the percentage of infections per test carried out falling slightly to 14.5%.
At the same time, Health Minister Mutahi Kagwe announced that 17 patients have died of the disease. Seven of them were registered in the last 48 hours, while 10 were late arrivals from health facility records that were requested and obtained on different dates. These numbers bring the total deaths to 2,011.
The total number of confirmed positive cases now stands at 120,910. National tests conducted so far total 1,414,865. Of the cases, 710 are Kenyan while 37 are foreigners.
Minister Kagwe dismissed media allegations that the vaccine distribution plan targeting frontline workers and civil servants is proceeding in a non-compliant manner. Kagwe clarified that the vaccination plan remains intact and targets all people residing in Kenya, including foreign diplomats who have actually already started booking the service in at least ten vaccination points in the country.
Meanwhile, 114 patients have recovered from the disease in the last 24 hours. The total number of discharges now stands at 89,622.
There are still 889 patients admitted to various health facilities across the country, while 2,545 others are in isolation and home care. 121 patients are in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU), 32 of whom are on ventilatory support and 86 on supplementary oxygen. 18 in the High Dependency Unit (HDU). Another 59 patients are on supplementary oxygen.
There are no official pronouncements yet on possible restrictive measures to be implemented just before the Easter holidays. The coming week will be decisive for this.
