Currently we are experiencing tough times as we are living a new normal. The President has put restrictive measures so as to contain the disease. Following today's figures we are optimistic that schools will open soon.

1,027 people have tested positive to the disease,from a sample size of 7,184 in the last 24 hours. Our positivity rate is at 14.3%. From the cases 1,009 are Kenyans while 18 are foreigners. 600 are males and 427 are females.

The youngest is a two month old infant while the oldest is 110 years. Total confirmed cases are now at 151,287. Cumulative tests so far conducted today are 1,599,668.

Recently Cabinet Secretary Magoha said that the academic calendar won't be interfered. Schools will be opened as scheduled. Initially we had a higher positivity rate which made the President to ban physical learning. Let us continue keeping social distance and washing our hands. Until next time keep safe.
