Kenya reached the peak of pandemic

MOH: "It's just what we told months ago"

"We confirm that, as we predicted months ago, Kenya has reached the peak of cases of Covid-19 infection. We announced that the peak would occur between the end of August and the beginning of September, and here we are.
These are the words of Health Director and WHO Representative for Kenya Patrick Amoth.
His words come as the country registers a slight rise in the percentage of swab infections in Kenya, from 5.5% to 8%.
This is now the only important data, among all the numbers that leave time during the daily bulletins transmitted by the Kenyan Ministry of Health.
The facts, however, say that the two most important restrictive measures of the Covid-19 emergency still in force (evening curfew and closure of bars and nightclubs) have been extended until next September 26 and that the World Health Organization is increasingly convinced that Africa has reached its pandemic peak.
According to the findings of Wednesday, August 27, 373 new virus positives were recorded in the last 24 hours out of 4663 swabs analyzed, bringing the total number of infected in Kenya since the beginning of the pandemic to 33,389. But it must also be said that the cases still active are 13,454, so well over half of the positives (90% of which were asymptomatic) have already recovered and of these only 567 have died, after 3 patients were added to the total yesterday.
Nairobi continues to have on average about half of the cases, although yesterday only a third were recorded, while there has been an increase, compared to previous days, in the area of Lake Victoria and the border with Uganda. Well, if not very well, the coast where we have been witnessing cases on our fingers for days. Yesterday only 6 in Mombasa.
"It is necessary to know that we have counties that have registered very few cases in which we are still able to perform 100% contact tracing - explained the Director General of Health Patrick Amoth - while in others we have transmission methods so it becomes more difficult, day by day, to be able to perform contact tracing".
