The number of confirmed COVID-19 cases in Kenya rose to 94,768 on Tuesday after the ministry of health reported 154 new infections from tests conducted in the past day.
Health minister Mutahi Kagwe said in a press briefing that the country had now conducted more than one million COVID-19 tests since the first case was reported in March.
He also announced three new COVID-19 deaths, bringing the country's total number of fatalities to 1,647.
Kenya is one of only eight countries in Africa that have recorded more than 90,000 COVID-19 infections.
The East African country's caseload is only shadowed by tallies registered by South Africa, Morocco, Egypt, Tunisia, Ethiopia, Libya and Algeria.
Kenya's death toll is the seventh-highest on the continent.
