The Ministry of Health on Wednesday said that Nairobi is the biggest contributor to the increased Covid-19 positivity rate. Over the last nine days, Nairobi has had an increase of a staggering 5,718 cases as the third wave of the pandemic continues to cause alarm in Kenya.
The government rolled out vaccination on March 5, 2021; targeting health workers, security personnel, clergy, teachers and other staff in learning institutions. And now, persons aged 58 years and above have been added to the list of those to receive the vaccines, with data showing that they account for 60 per cent of the deaths recorded so far.
On Thursday, the Nairobi Metropolitan Services (NMS) announced that it had received batches of the Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine and had distributed the same to several facilities. NMS asked those eligible to visit the listed facilities with their job cards for identification.
