Deputy President William Ruto has urged all Kenyans to play their part to ensure the Coronavirus is contained. This comes after the first Coronavirus case in Kenya was confirmed by the Health CS Mutahi Kagwe on Friday. The 27-year-old lady who was diagnosed with the Covid-19 had jetted back from the US, via London on March 5th, and after feeling unwell she went to the hospital where tests came back positive on Thursday, March 12th. A rapid response team was sent to Ongata Rongai on Friday to trace her paths and people she had come into contact with, with the patient still at the KNH isolation centre, and stable.
DP Ruto has said the Ministry of Health will give directions and guidelines on what Kenyans need to do so that the pandemic doesn’t become a problem, “Each of us must be willing and must be ready to play their part as we are given directions from our Ministry of Health..Every citizen must play their part so that we manage this tragedy.”
He said Kenyans must be alert because the Covid-19 is a pandemic, “Everyone must follow the guidelines that will be given by the government so that we can be able to contain and tackle this pandemic,” he said.
