Health Cabinet Secretary on Thursday announced that two patients who are victims of the Covid-19 pandemic are currently under Intensive Care Unit (ICU) at Aghakhan University Hospital.
The identity of the two is yet to be unveiled but they are both male. One is a Kenyan and another is a French national.
The CS also clarified that a South African national who died in Nakuru did not succumb to Covid-19 pandemic.
In the last 24 hours, 156 samples have been tested in various laboratories in Kenya and have all turned negative.
Among the five counties that have been hit by the pandemic include Nairobi, Kajiado, Kilifi Mombasa and Kwale.
Nairobi has 21 cases, Kilifi 6, Mombasa 2, Kajiado and Lamu has each 1 case.
The announcement comes a day after the first corona virus death was confirmed by CS Kagwe.
The 66 year-old Kenyan is said to have had a long term medical condition prior to his death.
He died at Agakhan University Hospital where he was under Intensive Care Unit (ICU).
“The man who was suffering from diabetes arrived in the country on March 13, 2020, from South Africa via Swaziland,” Kagwe said in a statement.
The death came hours after Kenya announced the first recovery case.
The recovery was of a 27-year-old lady who tested positive for the virus on March 13. Code-named patient zero, for being the first recorded case in Kenya, her recovery gave the country a much-awaited hope against the pandemic that is wreaking havoc across the globe.
