Coronavirus virus

A Chinese national who arrived into the country on February 10 has reportedly quarantined himself at his Nakuru home.

The county Government of Nakuru through health CEC Dr. Gichuki Kariuki has said that they received the information about the man from concerned neighbours.

They visited his house on Tuesday where they carried all the necessary tests for the dreaded virus.

All the tests returned negative with Kariuki asking locals to remain calm as the man would remain indoors for 14 days.

“We went to his house with our suits and a thermal gun, all the tests were negative, we will however keep monitoring him,” Kariuki said.

Health officials from the county will be making routine visits to the man’s home for the duration of the quarantine.

Citizen Digital understands that the man who is married to a Kenyan woman was on a direct flight from China.

He quarantined himself immediately he got home and has had minimal contact with his Kenyan family.

In a similar incident, a Chinese national is currently under isolation at the Mutomo hospital in Kitui.

He was among 18 other Chinese workers who jetted into the country over the weekend for work.

Scared locals had raised alarm after he showed up at a construction site and notified the county government.
