Kenya’s Ministry of Health on Monday confirmed one more case tested positive to the deadly coronavirus, bringing the total number of confirmed cases to 16.

Mutahi Kagwe, cabinet secretary for health, said all the cases that had tested positive to COVID-19 are in stable condition and are responding well to treatment at designated isolation centers in Nairobi.

“The last case is a close contact of one of the eight cases that tested positive yesterday (Sunday),” Kagwe told journalists in Nairobi.

Kagwe added that the ministry of health officers have traced 646 people who had come into contact with the 16 cases who had tested positive and are currently undergoing treatment in Kenyatta National Hospital.
