Kenya’s COVID curve flattening as 114 cases and no deaths reported

NAIROBI, Kenya Sep 1 – Kenya opened the month of September with zero COVID-19 deaths, with just 114 cases.

The cases have been dropping significantly since last month, in what President Uhuru Kenyatta attributes to the strict measures employed by his government.

The East African nation is still implementing a night curfew since April, with bars and all forms of entertainment joints ordered closed.

“We had 114 cases from 1,682 samples,” said Rashid Aman, a Chief Administrative Secretary at the Ministry of Health who released Tuesday’s statistics, updating the country’s caseload to 34,215.

“Fortunately,” he said, “there was no death.”

Dr Aman urged total compliance to regulations by the Health Ministry to help flatten the curve.

“We continue to advocate for the adherence of the set containment measures so as to defeat the spread of the virus in the country,” he said.

Aman further announced that 263 COVID-19 patients who were under the home-based care treatment had been cleared of the virus while another 55 were discharged from the hospitals raising the total number of recoveries in the country to 20, 211.
