Kenya has seen a hike in the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases as it records over 1000 cases in one day.
Three weeks ago, the Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta eased the corona virus related restrictions in the country. As a result, many Kenyans have stopped doing according to the safety protocols.
Since the outbreak of the deadly disease, this is the highest recorded number of cases in Kenya. This has led to an increase in the demand on hospitals.
A chief executive of Medical Pharmacists and Dentist Council, Mr. Daniel Yumbya has revealed plans of engaging some hotels in the country to be used isolation centers. This is because, the hospitals will not be able to contain the numbers as only 18,443 beds are available for isolation.
“We’re now back to negotiating with private hotels to charge the bare minimum for patients in isolation. We do not want hospitals to be overwhelmed,” Mr Daniel Yumbya said.
Confirmed cases for Kenya since the outbreak of the corona virus have exceeded over 47,200 and 870 deaths.
