"Today, we acknowledge positive steps we have made towards the management of Covid-19 patients. I am delighted to announce that today, we have surpassed the 100-mark for recovery of patients. In the last 24 hours, we have discharged eight patients from our hospitals. This brings to 106 the total number of our recoveries," said Dr Aman on Sunday.

He said that the number of recoveries had steadily increased while fatalities had stagnated.

"In the last one week, the number of those who have died from Covid -19 have remained at 14. Within the same period, we have discharged 39 persons. This is an indication of the dedication of our healthcare workers," he added.
He said that the governmnet appreciates the critical role of healthcare workers in the fight against the virus. He also acknowledged Absa Bank Kenya, PLC and Minet Kenya Insurance for providing psychological support care to health workers and those in quarantine facilities, isolation centres and their families.

He urged counties to strengthen their multi-sectoral structures to enable them respond to the coronavirus pandemic saying that communities should regularly be sensitised on infection prevention and control measures for Covid-19, including the role of nutrition in boosting the body’s immune system and speeding recovery from illnesses.

Having marked World Malaria Day on Saturday, the CAS urged Kenyans to protect themselves from the disease

"We would like to remind all of you that mosquitoes are not under quarantine or lockdown; they are still spreading malaria, we need to protect ourselves from mosquitos and to be on constant lookout for malaria symptoms such as fever, headache, joint pains, nausea and vomiting, which coincidentally, are also symptoms for Covid-19 disease. If you experience these symptoms, you need to visit your nearest health facility," he said.

Council of Governors Health Committee Chairman Mohamed Kuti said counties will identify Covid-19 dedicated facilities to ensure the continuity of routine essential health services.

Dr Kuti said health systems are coming under severe strain as the unprecedented pandemic persists.

“We do not want to negate the gains we made on issues such as vaccinations and maternal health. Having facilities dedicated to Covid-19 will give many, who have a sense of fear at this time, a sense of relief and they can visit the facilities without any fear,” he said.

Dr Aman also urged counties to strengthen their multi-sectoral structures to enable them to respond to the pandemic. He noted that communities should regularly be sensitised on infection prevention and control measures, including the role of nutrition in boosting the body’s immune system and speeding recovery from illnesses.
