Residents at Jacaranda Gardens told to self-isolate after confirmed COVID-19 cases

The management of Jacaranda Gardens along Kamiti Road, Nairobi, has asked residents to self-isolate after COVID-19 cases were confirmed in the estate. 

After collaborating with the Ministry of Health's COVID-19 response team in Roysambu sub-county, the management requested residents to self-isolate for 14 days with their children.

"The management in collaboration with MoH Roysambu sub-county Covid-19 response team wishes to inform residents that we have confirmed Covid-19 patients in the estate.

"Following this development, we are advised to request residents to isolate themselves with their children for fourteen days to avoid more contact," read the letter. 

The management also asked residents to maintain social distancing and use sanitizers, soap, and water to curb the spread of the virus.

On Wednesday, the Ministry of Health announced that COVID-19 cases in Nairobi have continued to rise after the ban of cessation of movement was lifted.

Experts warned that the country is heading to its peak and asked Kenyans to comply with the guidelines provided by the MoH.

For instance, Kenya recorded 497 cases on Tuesday and 461 on Wednesday. The total number of deaths from COVID-19 now stands at 209.
