Kenya's Covid-19 Cases Hit 197 by Kenyans247(1): Mon 13, April, 2020 08:23am
Confirmed cases of Covid-19 in Kenya rose to 197 on Sunday, April 12, after six more cases were confirmed by the Ministry of Health.

In the past twenty four hours, 766 samples were tested, with six returning a positive result. Five of those who tested positive are male while one is female.

Kenyan citizens make up five of the six new cases while one is a foreign national.

The new cases are spread across three counties; with four cases from Nairobi and one from Mombasa and Siaya respectively.
Of the new cases, two have a history of recent travel from the Middle East while one recently traveled from Mombasa.


Five of the new cases were from the mandatory quarantine centres, with one picked up by the health ministry's surveillance teams.

The statement by Cabinet Secretary Mutahi Kagwe further disclosed that over the same twenty-four hour period, one patient was discharged from hospital.

The announcement brings to 25 the total number of people who have been discharged in the country after fully recovering from Covid-19.

The death of one more Covid-19 patient was also confirmed in Kagwe's statement, bringing the total number of fatalities to eight.

Kagwe revealed that the deceased patient was from Siaya County even as he explained that contact tracing was on-going.

The daily press briefing on Covid-19 which Kenyans have grown accustomed to did not take place on Sunday, April 12, with the ministry opting to share a statement with newsrooms instead.


So far, 7,449 samples have been tested since the onset of the virus in Kenya with the government looking to ramp up its testing capacity to allow for mass testing.

"A total of 2,160 contacts have been monitored, out of which 1,660 have been discharged. Five hundred (500) contacts are being followed at the moment. A total of 7,449 samples have been tested since the onset of the disease in the country.

"We thank all Kenyans for their continued support and adherence to the Covid-19 mitigation measures we have put in place.

"However, we also want to remind our citizens not to relent until we succeed in completely containing the spread of the virus in our country," Kagwe's statement read in part.
