Kenya’s Ministry of Health on Sunday confirmed 30 new COVID-19 cases, bringing the total number of infections in the country to 465.

Rashid Aman, Chief Administrative Secretary in the Ministry of Health of Kenya, said the cases were discovered by medical personnel from 883 samples tested in the last 24 hours.

Aman said that the latest cases, involving 23 males and seven females, included 19 from the coastal city of Mombasa and 8 from Nairobi.

He noted that within the same period, 15 more patients recovered, bringing the total number of recovery cases to 167.

He announced that two more patients from the coastal city of Mombasa lost their lives to COVID-19, bringing the number of fatalities to 24.

Aman, however, said that in spite of acquiring testing capacity to undertake mass testing, there is low turnout at testing centers.

He appealed to Kenyans to willingly come forward to be tested to help flatten infections and minimize the risk of transmission.

George Magoha, Cabinet Secretary for Education, said that all learning institutions must remain closed until June 4. Enditem
