Kenya’s total number of confirmed Covid-19 cases rose to 374 on Tuesday as 11 more people tested positive.
Health Chief Administrative Secretary (CAS) Rashid Aman also announced that 10 more patients recovered and were discharged, raising Kenya’s total number of recoveries to 124.
The number of deaths remained 14, as reported on April 18.
Dr Aman said seven of the new patients were in Nairobi and four in Mombasa.
Of the cases in Nairobi, four were recorded in Kawangware and one each in Eastleigh, Manji Estate and Kaloleni. Mombasa’s cases were all recorded in Kibokoni.
“It is important to note that the trend of positive cases in the last few days has been restricted to Nairobi and Mombasa,” the CAS said, noting that this indicated an increase in local transmission.
