The government also discouraged any close contact of people with their partners saying that will increase the chances of spreading Coronavirus.

Kenya has confirmed three more coronavirus cases, meaning the country now has seven patients with Covid-19.

Health Cabinet Secretary Mutahi Kagwe on Wednesday confirmed that three more patients had tested positive for the virus.

Two of the cases were a couple that travelled from Madrid, Spain, on March 4 through Dubai, arriving in Kenya on March 5.

The third case is a Burundian national who travelled from Dubai, UAE, to Kenya. He arrived on March 17 and was picked up by a surveillance team, Mr Kagwe said.

“We are tracing persons who may have been in contact with the patients,” he said.

The tests were done by the National Influenza Centre and the Kenya Medical Research Institute (Kemri).

Eighteen patients are currently admitted at Mbagathi. Of these, the CS said, seven have been screened and are negative. Samples of 11 others are still being processed.

The government is now appealing to Kenyans to report anyone who is not self-quarantining.

“Any Kenyan travelling into the country must sign a legal form to assure the government that you will self-quarantine,” he said.

Mr Kagwe also stressed the importance of strict hygiene in curbing spread of the pandemic.

“Washing hands and social distancing is the key reason Chinese cases are coming down.”
