Nine more people have tested positive for Covid-19, bringing total number of confirmed cases in Kenya to 25, Health Cabinet Secretary Mutahi Kagwe has said.

Out of the nine cases, seven are Kenyans while two are foreigners.

"Kenyans indiscipline is really costing us. We now have nine more positive cases making the total to 25 now under treatment.

"It's unfathomable that we can't adhere to government measures and the day this crisis bites hard, you still turn to government with cries of "serikali saidia," Mr Kagwe said.

The CS said patients have been put in isolation and are being monitored. He said that the government was tracing those who have been in contact with the patients.

Mr Kagwe said that confirmed coronavirus cases are spread out in Nairobi, Mombasa, Kilifi and Kwale counties.

He said the government will carry a mandatory testing for travellers and those who have been in contact with the patients.
