Coronavirus cases rise to 126 in Kenya after 4 additions: govt

NAIROBI, Kenya Apr 4 – The number of positive cases for coronavirus in Kenya rose to 126 Saturday, after four new cases were confirmed.


Health Cabinet Secretary Mutahi Kagwe said the four new cases include 3 Kenyans and a Pakistani.

“In the last 24 hours, we have had four positive cases. Three are male while one is female,” Kagwe said, updating Friday’s figures from 122.

The government has invited the youth through their respective groups, to join in the war against coronavirus.

CS Kagwe said youth are crucial in the society, due to their population hence the need to involve them in the fight against the virus that has killed four people and infected 126 people in the country by Saturday.

“The youth are a very important component of the society, that is why we want them to work with authorities in their respective regions to help in the fight against coronavirus,” he said, “the youth have worked very well through groups and that is what we want them to do in this fight.”

He cited the various welfare groups and saccos in the matatu, boda bodas, tuk tuks among other ventures as an example that can be replicated in the war against COVID-19.
