Health experts in the county say mosques have been identified as some of the areas where the risk of the outbreak has increased.

So far about 10,000 have been confirmed infected with COVID-19 in Mombasa County.

975 people have been diagnosed with the virus from 10,727 samples tested this month alone.

The increase in visas has prompted Jomvu MP Badi Twalib to launch an awareness campaign among Muslim preachers in the area.

Twalib said continuing to ignore the conditions of controlling the spread of the disease could lead to an increase in the number of victims and ultimately push for the closure of places of worship.
