The government has urged Kenyans to get tested for Covid-19 so that they know their status.
Health Chief Administrative Secretary Rashid Aman said Kenyans have ignored the critical exercise conducted countrywide.
According to Aman, the government has acquired adequate testing kits to successfully accomplish the exercise.
Aman made the remarks on Sunday during the government’s daily brief on Covid-19 status in the country.
During the address, the government confirmed 30 more Coronavirus cases in the country.
19 of the confirmed cases are from Mombasa.
Eight confirmed cases are from Nairobi, 2 in Bungoma and one from Kitui County.
However, Mvita remains the government’s headache since among the 19 cases confirmed on Sunday, 15 are from Mvita constituency while 3 in Kisauni and one in Likoni.
“Please, if you want us to resume our normal duties soon get tested so that the government can make the required follow ups and salvage the country from the deadly disease,” noted Mr. Aman.
The Sunday government’s pronouncement raised the Covid-19 pandemic curve to 465.
“Two more people also succumbed to Covid-19 totaling the number of those who have so far died of the disease to 24, the two deaths are from Mombasa” noted Mr. Aman.
The government has registered 15 more recoveries in the last 24 hours.
Bungoma County becomes the 16th county to report Coronavirus cases where two of the new confirmed cases from the county are from truck drivers.
