Scientists at the Kenya Medical Research institute (KEMRI) are warning that the country is not safe yet, despite dodging the 4th wave of covid-19.
According to predictions by the agency, the month of July was to register an increase in Covid-19 cases.
Acting director General Prof. Sam Kariuki said this was averted owing to containment measures including the partial lockdown in the western region.
Kiambu County Government says the rise in Covid-19 infections in the county is alarming.
Kiambu Governor James Nyoro says the county’s public health system is overwhelmed with increased hospitalization.
He attributed the rise in infections to the fourth Covid-19 wave and political gatherings.
He however called on the locals to adhere to covid-19 safety protocols to contain further spreading of the virus.
Kiambu has recorded 20 infections in today’s reported Covid-19 cases,coming fourth after Nairobi with 334 cases, Kilifi with 84 and Nakuru with 21 cases.
