Further, the Health CAS indicated that 1546 people who had been in isolation have been discharged while others have been put on close watch and monitor.

According to the CAS, relenting on the government directives initiated to curb the spread would result in massive deaths.

“To relent on government directives is to invite mass deaths,” she said.

According to the Health Ministry, this weekend marks 100 days since the COVID-19 pandemic hit the country.

Dr Mwangangi also cautioned against politicizing donations and relief foods indicating that it is not the time for politics, rather the country should be united in fighting the virus.
