Kenyans have also been asked to visit their health providers if unwell. This was after it was observed that the number of people visiting hospitals has decreased since the first coronavirus case was reported back in March.

On whether the ministry will increase testing capacity, CAS Aman said they have received testing commodities. This he said, will allow more tests in the coming days.
