The number of COVID-19 infections in Kenya has risen to 94,151 after the ministry of health announced 390 new cases on Saturday from tests conducted over the past 24 hours.

From the confirmed cases, 363 were Kenyans while the remaining 27 were foreigners.

In the same period, four patients lost their lives to the disease, bringing Kenya's total number of fatalities to 1,633.

Kenya is one of only eight countries in Africa that have reported more than 90,000 COVID-19 cases.

Kenya expects to receive its first batch of the Oxford University-AstraZeneca vaccine in January, with the government saying groups at high risk of contracting the virus will be prioritized.

The ministry of health also announced 43 new recoveries, bringing its total number of recoveries to 75,559.
