829 More Covid-19 Cases, Amid the Pandemic's Ongoing Vaccination Drive
The surging number of cases come amid claims that the nation could be experiencing a third wave, which medics claim might be deadlier than the previous waves.
For the second day in a row, Kenya has continued registering high Covid-19 infection numbers. Speaking on Thursday, Health Ministry CS Kagwe Mutahi announced 829 new cases, pushing the infection toll to 111,185 cases.
Kenya has to date managed to test 1,353,126 samples since March 2020, when the pandemic arrived in the country. Out of the total confirmed cases, 1,899 individuals have since lost their battle to the pandemic.
Another 87,994 have since won the Covid-19 battle after having tested positive and recovered. The rising numbers of infections are being reported amid claims that the nation could be experiencing its third wave.
At the same time, the Covid-19 vaccination has continued taking dimensions, with more target audiences set for the jab administration.
Launched on March 5, 2021, medics strongly believe that the Covid-19 vaccine will go a long way in helping to combat the rise, by ensuring the recipients remain at a lower risk of contracting the infection.
Today's high number of cases also coincide with the call by the governors to have political rallies put on hold for a span of like one month.
The county bosses have largely attributed the surging cases to the political gatherings that have recently been ongoing nationwide.
With President Kenyatta set to address the nation tomorrow (Friday), the governors have compelled him to issue orders that will see a temporary stoppage for all political rallies.
