The Kenyan woman who has tested positive to corona virus infection travelled from Ohio via Chicago and then through London, UK, before landing at JKIA in Nairobi.

The woman, who is 27 years old arrived in Kenya on March 5th. She later complained that she was experiencing Corona-like symptoms and took herself to the hospital.

The government says it has traced all contacts the patient made since her arrival.

“We have done all the contact tracing and have all the names including the people who sat next to her on the flights she took,” Said Health Cabinet Secretary Mutahi Kagwe.

Consequently, Kenya has suspended all travel outside the country unless necessary.

Public gatherings are also suspended, including all inter-schools events.

The CS said every level 4 and 5 hospital in the country will have an isolation ward funded by the Ministry of Health and the World Bank.

Kenya has confirmed its first Coronavirus case.

Mr Kagwe on Friday said that although the patient, a Kenyan, is stable and eating, she will not be released from hospital until she is confirmed negative.

The woman is at Kenyatta National Hospital’s Infectious Disease Unit.

County Governments have also been urged to carry out regular public sensitisation on the coronavirus disease.

KEEP CALM

CS Kagwe urged Kenyans to remain calm, noting that there’s no need for panic or worry provided people abide by the measures put in place.

“This is not a time to assign blame but one to join hands to ensure this pandemic does not tear through our country. This is not the time to make abnormal prices,” he warned pharmacies and business people.

PUBLIC TRANSPORT

Transport Cabinet Secretary James Macharia, who was present at the press conference, said all public transport operators were summoned on March 10 for a special stakeholder meeting.

He said the government will be conducting training at bus stops from 10 am to 4 pm that will involve all bus drivers, matatu drivers and conductors.

“Public transport carries the vast majority of our people…more than 90 per cent. That is why we are giving it special focus.”

HEALTH ACT RULES

CS Kagwe has invoked the Public Health Act which requires Kenyans to:

  1. Maintain a distance of atleast 1 metre from persons who are coughing
    2. Those coughing and have fever and difficulty in breathing should stay at home
    3. All public gatherings, and events that have large gatherings
    4. Suspension of interschool events but schools will remain open
    5. Public transport operators will be required to regularly clean their vehicles and provide sanitizers to passengers
    6. Suspension of all visits to prisons for the next 30 days
    7. Kenyans have been warned against spreading misinformation
    8. Unless absolutely necessary, travelling to affected countries have been banned

The Coronavirus disease (COVID-19), whose epicentre was in Wuhan, China, has now killed nearly 5,000 people and infected more than 130,000 worldwide as at Friday.

It has spread to more that 120 countries across the globe.

PUBLIC GATHERINGS, RALLIES BANNED

Due to presence of the coronavirus case, all public gatherings, rallies, crusades and meetings of a national nature have been banned. This includes Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) rallies.

However, churches will continue to operate as usual as long they provide hand sanitisers to their congregants.

Interschool activities like drama, music festivals and sports have been also been banned.

Leaders sounded off on the announcement by Mr Kagwe, with Raila Odinga lauding the country’s preparedness.

“We are pleased with the government approach to handling the threat and protecting the health of Kenyans…As a country, we are in this together and we urge our citizens not to panic,” he said on his official social media page.
