Kenya now has recorded a total of 1109 infections since the first cases was confirmed back in March.

Nine more patients recovered from the virus raising the number of recoveries in the country to 345.

The government noted that the war on the pandemic cannot be won solemnly by them but also through the help of religious leaders who will be tasked with communicating to people.

“Religious community is key to us. We are working with them to make things happen including issues of domestic violence.”

Kenyans have been warned to prepare for much higher numbers of up to 200 cases a day in August and September when much more samples will be collected and tested.
