Earlier this week, the Minister for Health Ruth Aceng announced that there was an increase in the covid cases registered daily. She advised the general public to follow the Standard Operating Procedures.
In light of that government scientists have spoken out on what is causing the spike.
Dr Misaki Wayengera, the head of scientists advising the government on Covid-19, the increase is due to the wanning immunity and a suspected emergence of mutated forms of Omicron named BA.4 and BA.5.
The new types of Omicron are said to be behind the fresh spikes in Covid-19.
The new types are said to be more infectitious.
