Kenya has confirmed a highest number of coronavirus cases in a single day.
Health Chief Administrative Secretary (CAS) Rashid Aman on Sunday May 3, 2020 while giving the daily Covid-19 briefing at Afya House confirmed 30 new cases.
The CAS said that the cases came from the mass Covid-19 testings that kicked off in Nairobi’s Kawangware area, Eastleigh area and Mombasa.
CAS Aman said that out of the 30 new Covid-19 cases recorded today, 19 are from Mombasa, eight from Nairobi, two from Bungoma and one from Kitui County.
Bungoma has now joined the 16 Counties that have so far registered Covid-19 cases. The new cases are truck drivers.
Two more Covid-19 patients have also died, bringing the total number of fatalities to 24.
However, CAS Aman announced 15 more recoveries.
The CAS further urged Kenyans in the targeted high risk areas to come out and show up for mass testing to help contain COVID-19.
He has said that the testing is free and Kenyans should take advantage of this since in other counties people are unable to be tested as much as they would like to.
