Former Nairobi governor Mike Sonko has sent a warning to Kenyans against neglecting containment measure put by the Ministry Of Health to Curb the spread of COVID-19 infection.
On the social Media page,Sonko highlights how his team went to three different hospital in Nairobi in search for admission of one of their staff who had tested positive for coronavirus but all went in Vain.
“Kenyans,this COVID-19 pandemic is real,Aga khan,Nairobi, Kenyatta refferal hospital and Mb agathi ICU beds are full to capacity.But fortunately we found one at Ruai Family hospital for my staff Francis Wambua,”He said.
“Want i can tell kenya is to sanitize and wear face mask to prevent the spread of the deadly Viruse,”Warned the former governor.
Sonko’s experience comes at a time the country is facing a surge in COVID-19 case with increasing demand for ICU beds in hospitals to accomadate the high number of infections.
Nairobi has been leading in the recent weeks on some days accounting for almost half of the daily infections.
This rising number has been attributed by laxity among residents in adherence to the containment measure.
On Tuesday,1,183 people tested positive for COVID-19 from a sample size of 8,144 bringing the total number of positive cases to 213,757 and a cumulative number of tests to 2,205,159
