State House spokesperson Kanze Dena has assured Kenyans that President Uhuru Kenyatta and the First Family are safe and free from COVID-19.

This is after it emerged that during last week’s testing, four members of staff were found to have contracted the virus.

Dena reiterated that all State House including the Head of State are regularly tested and the family members of the affected staff had already been traced.

“During last week's mass Covid-19 testing held on Thursday, 11th June 2020, four (4) persons were found to have contracted the disease.

“The infected officers were admitted at the Kenyatta University Teaching, Referral and Research Hospital in Kiambu County for treatment.

“Families and close contacts of the affected officers are also being attended to accordingly,” read the statement in part.

She added that extra access protocols for State House staff residing outside the compound and visitors have been rolled out to ensure the situation is under control.

“State House would like to inform Kenyans that His Excellency the President and the First Family are safe and free from Covid-19.

“State House would also like to remind Kenyans that every person is at risk of contracting Covid-19. No one is immune to the disease.

“Let's us all therefore endeavor to fully adhere to the Covid-19 containment protocols as set out by the Ministry of Health,” maintained Dena.
