Eight more test positive for coronavirus : The Standard

Eight more people have tested positive for coronavirus, bringing the national tally to 270.

Speaking at Afya House on Sunday, Health CAS Mercy Mwangagi (pictured) said the seven Kenyans and one foreigner had no history of travel.

Since the first case was confirmed in Kenya on March 13, fourteen people have died.

Mwangangi said while Kenyans may be despairing over the increased numbers, the measures taken are bound to curb the virus spread.

She lauded those adhering to government directives and supporting the initiatives put in place against the virus.

The Health ministry’s analysis shows 56 per cent of all confirmed cases were imported.

In the last few days, only a few cases have emanated from the original quarantine centres.

“It is now the local transmissions that worry us the most, and because we do not know, and cannot know, everyone who is infected.”
