been two cases of doctors who traveled and later tested positive but had
refused to quarantine themselves.

The CS also revealed that 634 health workers had tested

While opining on the video of a medic claiming to have a
cure for Covid-19, Kagwe said not every doctor is an expert in matters

doctors, qualified to speak on matters medicine.

called a doc…they are experts in everything,” he said.

the 544, 340 are male while 204 are female.
Unfortunately, 12 lives were lost in the last 24hours taking
