Health Cabinet Secretary Mutahi Kagwe has appealed to Kenyans living in Machakos, Kajiado, Kiambu and Muranga to follow all measures laid out by the ministry of Health after the areas reported an increase in Corona Virus cases.

Kagwe has declared that Coronavirus is not a Nairobi disease,

“It’s something in the neighborhood carried around by your brother, sister or friend….” Said Kagwe

He uttered this after announcing the number of Coronavirus cases in the country has risen to 281 after eleven more people tested positive for the disease

On the brighter side, Mutahi Kagwe has revealed that 2 patients have recovered in the last 24 hours, with recoveries rising to 69 in the country.

One of the two patients who have recovered from the virus is a doctor who was taken ill after taking care of patients infected.

“We are launching a designated isolation center for the healthcare workers & all costs shall be incurred by the government in collaboration with Amref Kenya and The Rockefeller Foundation,” added Mutahi Kagwe.
