NAIROBI, Kenya May 31 – Even as the infections curve rose sharply in Kenya, the number of people discharged remained impressive, giving hope to patients still in hospital.

On Sunday, the Health Ministry said 14 more people were discharged after recovering from coronavirus.

“We are happy to announce that 14 more people have been discharged,” Health Chief Administrative Secretary Rashid Aman told a news conference when he announced 74 new infections, raising the national tally to 1,962.

The number of people who have recovered from COVID-19 is 474.

Cases of fatalities also increased to 64, after a patient from Kayole succumbed.

In the new cases of infections, Nairobi recorded 35 infections, followed by Mombasa with 23, 6 in Kiambu while the rest were distributed in Kwale, Uasin Gishu, Laikipia and Taita Taveta.

In Nairobi, Langata had 19 cases, Embakasi East and Central 3 each, Dagoretti North, Westland and Embakasi South 2, while Kasarani, Kamukunji, Makadara and Starehe had one each.

“Health is a central problem that we must deal with. If we can fix it, all others will quickly reset themselves. Fixing it requires that we deal with the spread of the infections,” he said, urging Kenyans to strictly adhere to the regulations of social distancing and hand washing.
