Leading with the number of patients testing positive for COVID-19 is Nairobi County, Kajiado, Kwale and Mombasa have also recorded positive patients.
Kitui County which lost a seasoned Kenya Airways pilot Major (Rtd) Captain Daudi Kimuyu Kibati who succumbed to COVID-19 infection is also a hotspot.
The Government raised a red flag on Kilifi County as an emerging hot spot for the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) late last month. This is after Kilifi Deputy Governor Gideon Saburi expanded the county’s infection chain after he declined to self isolate himself despite returning from Germany; one of the coronavirus-hit countries.
Kilifi deputy governor Gideon Saburi has since been arrested.
The government has discouraged intercounty travelling in a bid to flatten the curve which is now locally transmitted.
