An MP is on the county radar after a person he travelled with from Nairobi last week to attend a funeral tested positive for the coronavirus.

The entire weekend, the Covid-19 emergency response team has been mopping up contact persons of the 46-year-old man believed to be a resident of Kebirigo in Nyamira South sub-county.

Governor John Nyagarama said so far, 14 of the people the victim interacted with had been traced and were being held at the Kenya Medical Training College Quarantine centre.
