Health Cabinet Secretary Mutahi Kagwe has revealed that masks obtained from China to help in the fight against coronavirus recently failed quality checks.

Speaking in Kisumu County during the daily Covid-19 briefing, the CS stated that the masks that failed the tests were analyzed by the Kenya Bureau Of Standards (KEBS).

Kagwe noted locally made Personal Protective Equipment (PPEs) were of high quality compared to some of the imported protective gear. He encouraged Kenyans to embrace locally manufactured PPES.

Sub-standard PPES increase risk of exposure especially for frontline health workers

Kenya imported PPES from China to aid in the fight against the virus.

Kenya was also among African countries that received a donation of PPEs from Chinese business magnate Jack Ma.:

Kagwe did not specify which of the PPES received from the Asian country failed the quality tests.

At the same time, the CS warned doctors that are issuing negative certificates for deaths as a result of the virus, to enable the families hold normal burials.

“We are aware that there are doctors, in the private sector who are undermining the process of protecting families by exploiting their emotions and colluding with some of them to ensure burials are done normally,” said Kagwe.

 

Kagwe noted that in the past 24 hours Kenya recorded 599 new cases of Covid-19 after testing 4420 samples. The number of infections confirmed in the country now stands at 26,436.

1,062 patients, majority of them in home-based care, have recovered in the last 24 hours, while the death toll has risen to 420 after two more victims succumbed to the virus.

Russia announces world’s first Coronavirus vaccine which offers ‘two years’ immunity

Russia president Vladimir Putin, has announced that his country has finally approved the world’s first Covid-19 vaccine, saying he has tested it on his daughter and it worked.

According to Putin, the vaccine was developed at Moscow’s Gamaleya Institute, with large-scale production of the vaccine projected to start in September, while mass vaccination may begin as early as October.

Russia announces world

The vaccine has undergone just less than two months of human testing but Putin speaking to Government officials on Tuesday August 11 said one of his two daughters is among those who have already had a shot of the new vaccine.

Putin did not specify which of his daughters had received the jab, but said she had a temperature of 38C on the day of her first injection, which then dropped to 37C the next day.

He said she had a slight increase in temperature after the second injection, but she is now ‘feeling well’. He revealed she had a ‘high number of antibodies’.

The next stage of the tests, commonly known as a Phase III trial, will involve thousands of participants. According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), there are more than 100 possible Covid-19 vaccines currently being developed around the world.

This phase III stage is normally considered an essential precursor before a vaccine can receive regulatory approval and be distributed worldwide.

Putin speaking today said: ‘I know that it works quite effectively, forms strong immunity, and I repeat, it has passed all the needed checks.’

According to Putin the vaccine development is a ‘very important step for the world.’

The Health Ministry said in Tuesday’s statement that the vaccine is expected to provide immunity from the coronavirus for up to two years.

Putin emphasized that vaccination will be voluntary and that medical workers, teachers and other risk groups will be the first to be inoculated.

Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte has lauded Russia’s efforts in developing the vaccine and said that the Philippines is ready to work with Moscow on vaccine trials, supply, and production.

Duterte volunteered to “be the first they can experiment on.”

“I will tell President Putin that I have huge trust in your studies in combating COVID and I believe that the vaccine that you have produced is really good for humanity,” Duterte said, adding that he thinks Russia’s vaccine will be ready for the Philippines by December.

Church Services To Last For 90 Minutes
Church Services To Last For 90 Minutes

Churches have been open now for a little over a month since the Coronavirus pandemic hit Kenya.President Uhuru Kenyatta allowed faithfuls to congregate on July 6 but under strict measures to prevent the spread of the disease.Then, the head of state said that only 100 people would be allowed in at a particular time.

He also banned persons below the age of 13 and those above the age of 58 from attending church services.

Further, Uhuru stated that services will not last more than 60 minutes.

But an interfaith council on Tuesday amended some of the measures announced by the president.

 

Church Services To Last For 90 Minutes

For instance, sessions will go on for 90 minutes as opposed to the earlier announced timings.

Children aged 6 years will also be allowed to attend church services even after Uhuru suspended Sunday School.

If you are aged 65, you will starting August 18 be able to go to church.

Physical worship services were suspended in March as part of efforts to contain the spread of the novel coronavirus disease.

Some churches in the country resorted to online services to continue nourishing their congregants spiritually.

Several religious leaders had expressed concerns over the state move to close churches with some going to court to challenge the decision. The courts, however, refused to issue orders to reopen the places of worship and instead encouraged the clergy to embrace online services.
