Red Flag as Covid-19 Deaths Continue to Rise in Kenya

The number of people who need critical care is increasing, from below 10 cases a few weeks ago to 18 patients in ICU, 49 on supplementary oxygen and 16 in the high dependency unit, according to Patrick Amoth, the acting Health Director-General. While Githinji Gitahi, Amref Health Africa Group CEO says. The capacity of hospitals need to be improved and oxygen needs to be available. People should be encouraged to seek healthcare early and stop being afraid of going to hospital, he adds. Fears have reportedly gripped prison communities across the country as the number of infections rise, amid audit queries over the expenditure of Covid-19 funds.
