According to The Ministry of Health Director General, Patrick Amoth, says that Kenya will experience coronavirus peak in the months of August and September.
During this period, Kenya is likely to record 200 cases daily.
“If we continue with the measures that have been put in place as of today, the peak period will be in August and September where its likely for us to report 200 cases plus a day,” Said Amoth “remember modelling keeps on changing based on the variables you input and our wish is to continue with the existing measures because they have ensured our hospitals have not been overrun.”
He also said that the measures that the government has put in place have played a key role in suppressing the spread of the virus noting that Kenyans should continue following the laid down guidelines.
Earlier projections had indicated that Kenya would have recorded 10, 000 coronavirus cases by April. So far the positive cases stand at 1109. Dr Amoth said that this is a result of the measures that the government took by closing schools and imposing cessation of movement which played a greater part in combating the spread of the virus.
