NAIROBI – A Kenyan truck driver who tested positive in Uganda has tested negative in Kenya, the Kenya Medical Research Institute (KEMRI) has said. The trucker was tested at the Malaba border on May 3, and the Ugandan officials later called him and confirmed to him his positive status while he was on his way to Mombasa.

As per agreed standard, the driver was picked by the county COVID -19 response team and isolated at the Voi County Referral Hospital. A confirmatory was later taken by the health officials who also kicked off contact tracing. The test came back negative at the KEMRI offices in Kilifi.

Health Executive John Mwakima Mwangeka confirmed the driver’s test results and said more tests were being done at the Taita Taveta border to curb the spread of coronavirus.

    You guys wake up and do your homework on those kits. The wise President of Tanzania taught the world a lesson but you haven’t learned yet.
