KMPDC has raised alarm over insufficient beds for Covid-19 patients as the country stares at a possible second wave of infections.

Kenya has 18,443 isolation beds for use by coronavirus patients against the national target of 30,500 units.

According to KMPDC, by October 12, some counties had not met the 300-bed requirement, which was the target set by President Uhuru Kenyatta in July.

KMPDC chief executive Daniel Yumbya said 17,951 of the available beds are for isolation while the remaining have been set aside for intensive care cases.
