Kenya’s Ministry of Health (MoH) on Thursday announced that the country has registered 277 more positive coronavirus cases. This brings the total tally of the country’s cases to 105,057.

119 more patients have recovered, 79 from the Home Based Isolation and Care while 40 are from various health facilities. The total recoveries are now 86,497.

Unfortunately, eight more patients succumbed to the disease bringing the total fatalities to 1,847.

The country has 16,713 active Coronavirus cases.

Kenya is among the African nations yet to begin their Covid-19 vaccination drive, even as the Kenya Covid-19 vaccine advisory taskforce says everything has been put in place to ship the first four million Covid-19 vaccine doses before the end of February, with frontline workers expected to be the first to receive the vaccines, which will be a voluntary exercise.
