The youngest of the infected is a 2-month-old child and the oldest is a 90-year-old.
As it stands, the total number of cases confirmed in Kenya are 342,026 out of 3,946,839 cumulative tests conducted. Unfortunately, though, these new cases were not confirmed in one area, they were spread out across the country.
The cases were distributed as follows; Nairobi 23, Siaya 10, Kisumu 5, Nakuru 4, Laikipia 2, Nyeri 2, Busia, Isiolo and Kiambu have 1 case each.
The country had also just registered 98 Covid-19 recoveries which brought the total to 335,838. The ministry did not record any deaths within the review period so the fatalities still stand at 5,684.
“There are 30 patients currently admitted to our health facilities, while 474 are under the Home-Based Isolation and Care program. 1 other patient is on supplemental oxygen, and is in the General ward,” noted Health Cabinet Secretary Nakhumicha Wafula in a statement to newsrooms.
The last 24 hours haven’t been all about bad news as a total of 8,624 vaccines were recorded to have been administered.
“An additional 2,815,733 are doses administered to those between 12 to below 18 years while 1,766,231 are booster doses. The proportion of adults fully vaccinated was 36.8%. The Government is working towards vaccinating a targeted population of 27,246,033 people,” said the Health CS.
