As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to become bigger by day, almost 2 million people have been infected by the virus globally and over 60,000 others have succumbed to the virus. In Kenya, there has been an increase in the number of COVID-19 cased with at least 200 people said to have contracted the virus.
The government has been doing its best in combating the virus. Among preventive measures put in place to prevent the spread of the virus include dusk to dawn curfew, cessation of movement in and out of continued affected by the virus, demanding that everyone should wear a proper mask when stepping out into the public. Ministry of Health identified counties into which the virus has spread cautioning the public that the COVID-19 is almost everywhere in the country.
“The virus is now domiciled across the length and breadth of our republic — from down south in Kilifi to Mandera in the north. And from the west in Vihiga to Kitui in the east,” warned Health Chief Administrative Secretary Mercy Mwangangi on Tuesday.
As of Tuesday, 20 out of 47 counties in the county had reported a case or more of COVID-19 infection. Breaking it down to the counties and the number of patients in each of the counties, the Health CAS, encouraged the public to be wary of the virus and take personal responsibility in preventing its spread.
