According to Dr. Mercy Mwangangi the chief administration secretary
Seven more covid- 19 positive cases have been confirmed in Kenya on April 4, 2020.
According to CAS Dr. Mercy Mwangangi, five out of the seven extra coronavirus positive cases confirmed today were picked up by the government’s surveillance team.
Five cases hail from Nairobi County, 1 from Uasin Gishu County and the remaining one case from Mombasa County.
This is proof that Nairobi County remains a coronavirus hot spot in Kenya.
There is a flicker of hope however since most of the coronavirus positive cases range from mild to moderate.
Speaking during a live press briefing, Dr. Mwangangi said that the MOH was in the process of finalizing home-based care guidelines that will be used to treat mild cases of the coronavirus at home.
She said that the government shall assess first whether the coronavirus patient’s home is viable for quarantine before giving a go-ahead.
