Kenya Medical Practitioners and Dentist Board (KMPDB) officials on Monday raided a cosmetic -dermatology clinic at Yaya Centre in Nairobi claiming to sell coronavirus test kits.

The raid at the facility known as Avanè cosmetic -dermatology clinic and medical spa was conducted after an advert emerged on social media claiming that the clinic was selling the kits.

KMPDB officials conducted a thorough search of the facility in search of the kits before 15 staff members were taken away for interrogation.

The advert containing a till number asked members of the public to place their orders, claiming that only 400 kits out of their 1000 unit stock were remaining.

The management of the clinic however maintained that they were yet to order for any of the kits.
