The third wave of Covid-19 seems to be taking root across Kenya. This is the most recent high case on Covid-19 in Kenya after the peak of the second wave which was in November last year. The cases of contraction are rising, yesterday, the ministry of health announced that 1,274 people had tested positive out of the 7,240 who were tested.
Yesterday, Susan Kiwai, the deputy governor of Jericho County died after being hospitalized for 5 days due to Covid 19. Other leaders including Rails Odinga are in isolation due to contraction of the disease. While announcing the death of his deputy governor, Jericho governor Chepkwony urged Kenyans to keep the Covid prevention measures. “We must not lower the guard. It has taken away our deputy governor. This virus is not a respecter of persons,” He said.
There are raising concerns that the high number of infection and deaths might be a sign of a third wave of Covid-19 in Kenya. KENYA’S health CS, Mutahi Kagwe told health facilities to prepare since the country has started feeling the effects of a third wave.
