Deaths in homes are alarming

When the Ministry of Health started giving daily updates on the coronavirus two months ago, it reported a few deaths over a number of days. The number of deaths in Kenya is now 50, the second-highest in East Africa after Somalia’s 56. Kenya’s fatality total for Covid-19 is also high compared to those of neighbouring countries such as Uganda, which has no death from the disease, and Djibouti, which has only four.
