Breaking News: 15, June 2020 - Latest Kenya Covid-19 Cases and Updates

Health Cabinet Secretary Mutahi Kagwe, speaking in Nyandarua on a tour of the county’s health facilities, said a total of 3,365 samples were tested on Monday 15th June 2020.

The total number of COVID-19 infections in Kenya rose to 3,727 after 133 more patients tested positive for the disease.

CS Kagwe also stated that 33 patients had since been discharged from various facilities across the country hence taking the number of recoveries to 1,286.

The CS however expressed remorse saying the country had lost one patient, hence the tally of coronavirus-related deaths now stands at 104.

“The number of those infected continues to rise. As a country, we must take individual responsibility to curtail this,” he said.

CS Kagwe further noted that Nyandarua is among only 9 of the 47 counties that are yet to record a single COVID-19 case.

According to State House spokesperson Kanze Dena, the four cases were recorded during a mass COVID-19 testing held on Thursday, June 11.

The infected officers were admitted at the Kenyatta University Teaching, Referral, and Research Hospital in Kiambu County for treatment.

“The tests are conducted on all staff including His Excellency the President and members of his family,” said Kanze Dena, in a statement.

“Families and close contacts of the affected officers are also being attended to accordingly.”

The State House spokesperson has assured the public that President Uhuru Kenyatta and the First Family are safe and free from COVID-19.
