Kenya has recorded 22 more coronavirus cases, bringing the total number of cases in the country to 81.

On Wednesday, Health Cabinet Secretary Mutahi Kagwe said the latest cases was the highest confirmed in a single day since the first case was announced on March 13th.

“In the last 24 hours we have tested over 300 people out of which 22 tested positive, 13 are male and 11 are females,” he stated.

The minister said that Kenyans should observe the quarantine rule announced by the government saying 21 out of 22 confirmed were from the guests in mandatory quarantine.

“Kenyans, over the last 24 hours 810 Italians have passed on during the same period 812 Spanish people have passed on as a result of coronavirus, what this tells us is that we can’t emphasize enough what is likely to be ahead of us unless and until we adhere to the rules that we have established,” stated Kagwe.
