Kenya is set for an additional $50 million credit from the World Bank Thursday to support the fight against Covid-19 as confirmed cases rose to hit 81, local publication Daily Nation reported. 

Daily Nation reported that Health Secretary Mutahi Kagwe made the announcement saying that the credit facility will increase the government’s pool of funds to finance production of sanitisers, protective gear for medical personnel and scaling up bed capacity for Covid-19 patients.

The funding comes just as Kenya recorded the highest jump in infections on Wednesday when it confirmed 22 new cases even as fears mount of dire days ahead.

The patients are 18 Kenyans and two nationals each from Pakistan and Cameroon, who tested positive from among 300 persons with Mr Kagwe saying that they are all in quarantine.

The CS, however, warned that the transmissions will likely rise in coming days unless Kenyans adhere to the government directives on social distancing and basic hygiene measures that include use of sanitizers and cleaning hands using soap and water.
