Cholera strikes amid Corona virus pandemic! Kenya records 80 Covid-19 cases as Cholera claims lives


Thirteen people have died of Cholera as the country recorded yet another spike in the number of coronavirus cases.

In Thursday’s briefing that captured the medical landscape in Kenya, Health CS Mutahi Kagwe (pictured) announced that the ministry was also focusing on other disease outbreaks that had sickened hundreds, predominantly in the Northern part of Kenya.

“Over the last few months we have focused our briefings on Covid-19 and understandably so, we will continue to do that however we find it prudent to use this platform to also present to you a picture of the medical landscape in Kenya as it relates to disease outbreaks,” he said.

Scores of those infected with Cholera are below the age of 10 and of those who have died are from Marsabit (12) and Turkana (1).
