By Vincent Kejitan | March 14th 2020

Public Health officials on Saturday afternoon carried out a fumigation exercise in Rongai after it was reported that the lady who tested positive for Coronavirus resided in the area.

Speaking to Ureport, KTN News reporter Judah Ben-Hur stated that the lady’s house was sprayed as well as the floor she lived in.

This comes a day after Health CS Mutahi Kagwe reported the first case of Coronavirus in the country.

During the Friday presser, the CS said the 27-year-old lady landed in the country on March 5, 2020, and was returning from the US to Nairobi via London.

She was confirmed positive by the national influenza lab and is being managed at the Infectious Diseases Unit at the Kenyatta National Hospital.

Here are photos of the fumigation exercise:
