Sadly we lost 5 more patients to the virus bringing the country’s fatalities to 559. The declining number of covid-19 positive cases has sparked calls from a section of Kenyans demanding president Uhuru Kenyatta to reopen the economy. The ministry of health has however insisted that the covid-19 curve is yet to be flattened and has continued heeding to government’s directives such as washing of hands and wearing face masks.
