(AFRICAN EXAMINER) – Kenya’s health ministry says it will soon roll out home-based care for Covid-19 patients because the country’s isolation facilities are almost full.
Health Minister, Mutahi Kagwe, who announced this stated that they will first publish guidelines for home-based care before patients can be released to their families so as to free hospitals and he cautioned Kenyans not to stigmatise patients who will be allowed to go recover at home.
