COVID-19: New Estimates Suggest 1.4 Million Could Be Affected By The Nairobi Virus


- The updated model indicates that up to 8,755 neurobene infected people need to be hospitalized.


- Others 102,742 are asymptomatic, while 928 may have more life-threatening deaths from the disease.

-So far, about 2.6 million people in Kenya have already been infected with COIDID-19, according to Kerry Surveillance by KEMRI.

- As of Tuesday, July 14, there were 10,791 virus cases reported in the country, including 3,017 recoveries and 202 deaths.

A new model estimates that at least 1.4 million residents in Nairobi suffer from COVID-19 during the life cycle of the coronavirus in the country.

According to Emergency Responder Rescue.co, the infection peaked in September 2020 and at least 1,505 people will be in the ICU next year.

Of the 102,742 patients, the model shown was asymptomatic, with 8,755 requiring hospitalization with a fatal outcome of 928 toppings.

“Our adjusted model indicates that by September 2020 1.4 million people in Nairobi County will be infected with COVID-19 in their life cycle.
According to the adjusted model, 102,742 features appear. About 8,755 people will need to be hospitalized next year, with 1,505 going through ICU facilities. Some 928 people will die, ”Rescue Co said in its latest report.
A large number of cases occur in Nairobi.

Another factor that promotes more epidemics in the capital city and other counties is seeing more people travel in Mombasa and Nairobi.

"With the lifting of the lockdown measures, we expect the inter-county transmission of the virus to increase, but the transmission of CORID-19 to Nairobi will not increase significantly because cases outside Nairobi have been low for the past two weeks.

Whenever it is thought to migrate to Nairobi in the coming weeks, some believe it will become a carrier of the virus. Nairobi as a rescue zone, as an urban area, is vulnerable to the spread of the virus: the population density is high and the economic need means that social unrest will become increasingly challenging in the coming weeks, ”Rescue explained.

As of Tuesday, July 14, Nairobi has maintained the infection burden for 292 of the 497 cases announced by the Ministry of Health.

There have been 10,791 cases reported in the country since March 13, including 3,017 recoveries and 202 deaths.

The ministry said 36 patients were in the ICU, of which 18 were leaning on ventilators and 18 were receiving supplemental oxygen.
