Kenya has recorded a new low of COVID-19 cases with 271 cases reported in the last 24 hours.
This is after weeks of more than 500 new COVID-19 infections being reported daily.
Health Cabinet Secretary Mutahi Kagwe said the new cases were drawn from 3,746 samples tested beginning Saturday.
The youngest in today’s cases is an 8 month-old baby, with the oldest aged 86 years.
The new infections now raise Kenya’s tally to 30,120.
The numbers follow a recent warning that the country is heading to the peak period projected from later this month, which is expected to last up to early next year.
Cases of recoveries continue to increase after 686 COVID-19 patients were today declared free of the disease, raising the number of recoveries to 16, 656.
Health Cabinet Secretary Mutahi Kagwe said in a statement on Sunday that fatalities had increased, after two patients succumbed. One patient had a pre-existing condition. The death toll now stands at 474 cases.
