Confirmed new coronavirus infections in Kenya span patients aged between 2 and 100, Kenya’s Health Ministry announced Friday.

In a tweet, the ministry said: “282 people [240 Kenyans and 42 foreigners] have tested positive for the virus, from a sample size of 4,095 tested in the last 24 hours, bringing to 95,713 the number of confirmed positive cases in the country.”

While one person was killed from the infection, new COVID-19 cases include 164 males and 118 females.

“The youngest is a two-year old child, while the oldest is 100,” it said.

While Kenya has been hit by a second wave from the pandemic, fatalities stand at 1,653, while 76,811 patients have recovered.

The coronavirus was first reported in Wuhan, China, last December before spreading globally. More than 79.7 million people have been infected with an excess of 1.74 million deaths, according to US-based Johns Hopkins University.
