Press Statement on Corana virus pandemic

Chairman CoG201921st April 2021

Today, the positivity rate as reported by the Ministry of Health in the Daily Situational Report isat 9.6% from a sample size of 2,515 individuals tested. Wehowever note that the decrease of the positivity rate is as a result of lack of testing kits in the Country. This poses a major challenge as the virus is spreading rapidly and could overstretch the county health facilities. As County Governments, we have engaged the Ministry of Health to avail testing kits to the Counties to ensure proper documentation of the magnitude of the disease within the communities and proper reporting of the factual situation which will then lead to proper response measures. In the last one week, County Governments have addressed themselves to the following critical issues:-

1.Status of bed capacity in 38 Counties The bed capacity in 38 Counties is as follows:-

  • There is a total of 7,751 beds in 142 isolation centers out of which 6,890 beds are available for patients;
  • There are a total of 375 beds in the ICU out of which 321 beds are available for new patients; and
  • There are a total of 167 beds in the HDU out of which 107 beds are available for new patients.
