The 11 cases tested positive from a total of 589 samples. The total tally is now at 374. The patients are aged between 3 and 70.

The CAS stated that in light of the growing reports, “We therefore want to request residents of these areas to take extra measures to avoid contracting the virus.”

“It is important to note the trend of positive cases have been restricted to Nairobi and Mombasa. This indicative of increased local transmission in these two counties. The rest of the counties are advised to continue observing the containment measures,” added Dr Aman.
