President Uhuru Kenyatta has declared a cessation of movement in five counties. The capital city of Kenya, Nairobi,and its environs Kajiado, Machakos, Kiambu and Nakuru counties reported the most cases of Covid infections.
“Nairobi county accounts for nearly 60% of all recorded cases. This means that out of 5 people, 3 are more likely to positive for COVID-19 disease,” he said.
“If you test 100 Kenyans for Covid-19, 20 will test positive. Rate of infection up 10 times.”
Uhuru said Kenya’s Covid positivity rate has jumped tenfold from 2.6% in January to 22% in March.
This means that if you test 100 people, 20 will test positive. Worse in Nairobi, where six out of ten test positive. Uhuru said the third wave is expected to peak in the next 30 days.
