Kenya says 2 of its Covid-19 patients travelled from Malawi

Kenya’s health Cabinet Secretary Mutahi Kagwe on Saturday, April 4, said four people that had tested positive for the coronavirus (Covid-19) disease, two of them had travelled to Malawi.

Kagwe: Two of the new cases travelled from Malawi and Pakistan

The total number of patients affected by the Covid-19 disease in Kenya had risen to 126.

Of the four new patients, Mutahi stated that three are Kenyans while one is a Pakistan national.

“Two of the new cases travelled from Malawi and Pakistan while the other two contracted the virus locally,” Kagwe said.

Malawi has since recorded four cases of Covid-19 but there are fears that spread of the deadly virus were at various levels of the distribution channel.

A suggestion that the public needs to take seriously is the testing of MALAWIAN airlines crew, who have been flying passengers all over that test positive after days of quarantine. Some of the crew had complained of symptoms that were ignored by their management. They possibly could’ve even flown these Kenyans back to Nairobi out of lilongwe /blantyre. As they carried a transit passenger who was on the same flight with a man who had tested positive in Zimbabwe.

Tell the public their identities so that we prevent further spread.

The zero contact tracing efforts Malawi is making will have devastating consequences and the country will be overwhilmed and izi zomabisa the location of possible hot spots ndiye zitiphetsa.

I am not sure if two came from Malawi. The Kenyan minister seemed to be saying that one person passed through Malawi and a second passed through Pakistan. But that’s a distinction without a difference. What’s important at times like this is a competent president. This idiot we have will get us all killed. Mxii! Ase!

In countries with competent presidents and prime ministers as well as sophisticated hospitals as the UK, Italy, , USA people are dying in 10os and thousands. What are you talking about? Have you watched world news?
