We are seeing a trend where more new positive cases are recorded in Nairobi and Mombasa. This should be a pointer to the immense work that we have to do in these two counties & not a license for the other counties to celebrate and drop their guard.

We are taking additional and deliberate steps to partner with patients who have recovered like Mr. Salvador Angira to spread this awareness; Dr. Mwangangi.

We are glad that the number of recoveries keeps rising day by day. Today, we have discharged additional 5 patients. This brings to 129 the total number of recoveries.

“I continue to appeal to our brothers and sisters to be considerate, warmly welcome and embrace our people when discharged from hospital,” Dr. Mercy Mwangangi, CAS Health .

Since we first reported our first COVID-19 case, we have recorded many recoveries of our people who have successfully been treated of coronavirus, and have been let to go home.

While we celebrate these recoveries, we are disturbed that re-integration has not been easy for others because of being stigmatized considering our constant appeal and massive education, across many platforms, that Covid 19 is a disease like any other.

We are using community health volunteers to intensify community surveillance.

We are going to deploy surveillance teams to ensure social distancing is adhered to. Dr. Mercy Mwangangi.

We are urging all counties to impose the protocols issued by the national government; CS Devolution, Eugene Wamalwa.

We are urging counties to prioritize CoVid 19 interventions as we support them: CS Devolution, Eugene Wamalwa;

Fumigation is being intensified in informal settlement areas to #KomeshaCorona; Dr. Francis Kuria, Head Public Health.
