Kenya's Covid-19 Cases Soar Amid Concerns Over Tests

From a turnaround of 24 hours when the novel coronavirus first struck in Kenya in March, it is now reportedly taking more than seven days to get results. Meanwhile, those tested go on with their lives and may infect others. The government is facing a crisis over a shortage of testing kits and reagents at a time when the numbers of positive cases are rising.
