Kenya has reported 66 new coronavirus cases in the past day — it's highest daily jump so far, bringing the overall number of cases to more than 1,000, its health ministry said Wednesday.
The coastal city of Mombasa has nearly half of those new cases, the ministry said, adding that all the patients are stable and in isolation.
A 6-year-old was the youngest person in Kenya to die of coronavirus, Ministry of Health Director General Patrick Amoth announced today.
At least 50 people have died in Kenya due to coronavirus, according to Johns Hopkins University data.
The German Embassy in Kenya said it has donated two mobile labs to help ramp up testing on truck drivers at border points flagged as hot spots, especially the Namanga point, which borders Tanzania.
