MOH: "Coast virus cases are going down"

Only 6 positives, but Nairobi remains a concern

06-08-2020 by redazione

The Covid-19 case curve on the coast is downhill.
Confirmation of this impression (as you know we listen to all the bells and never take anything for granted, especially regarding this pandemic) comes for the first time from the Ministry of Health of Kenya.
It is the first time that the Minister himself, Mutahi Kagwe, has let himself go to an optimistic outlook. He did so yesterday, during the customary press conference for the latest 24-hour bulletin, which was held extraordinarily well at Kenyatta University Referral Hospital.
Observing that in Nairobi the pandemic has reached a critical phase (but also in the adjacent Kiambu County the cases are increasing, yesterday 112) and that it is slowly reaching its peak, Kagwe said that Mombasa, with only 6 cases, is already in a downward phase.
In the communiqué of Wednesday, August 5, 671 positive cases of Covid-19 in the last 24 hours were recorded, which has increased the total number of cases in Kenya to 23,873. The swabs analyzed were 6200, with a percentage of just under eleven percent.
The positive trend of patients declared cured continues. There were 603, bringing the total number of discharged patients to 10,000 (9930). A good 436 were already following a recovery plan at home, while 167 were discharged from hospitals.
Another positive figure, only 3 were deaths with Covid-19, of which 2 are health workers. The total rose to 391. Kenya is between 60th and 65th in the list of the 215 people in the world who report their data to the World Health Organization on a daily basis.
"We lost two health workers - said the Minister - It's like losing soldiers in war. We urge county governments to listen to the comments and concerns of health workers in order to better assist them.
Among the category, meanwhile, in many counties there is a discontent not only because of the poor protection they say is given to nurses and staff, but also because of back pay. There are those who have threatened a strike for next Monday, August 10.
Kagwe was in the University Hospital of Kenya to inaugurate a 500-seat Infectious Diseases ward, 50 of which are intensive care and 60 for extended stays, bringing the total number of beds in the institute to 1,150.
