Coronavirus at an all-time high in Kenya

We aren’t even taking the wearing of nose masks seriously anymore. Everything is just as it used to be before the pandemic hit, except of course the economic effects AND the fact that there’s still a killer disease out there that even SCIENTISTS, know little about.

Kenya, eased their lockdown in mid-October and 2 weeks after, there’s a 51% surge in Coronavirus cases.

The WHO says the country reported 4,594 new cases in the past week – up 51% on the previous week.

“It is just shy of its previous peak at the end of July, when there were 4,700 new cases – although deaths have increased at a much lower rate (9%),” the WHO says.

Health Minister Mutahi Kagwe warned recently that the country could be headed for a second surge.
