Medics at Makindu Sub-County Hospital in Makueni County were reported to had fled the facility after police officers brought in five finicky ill Chinese patients. The scare escalated by the fact that the Chinese, who accompanied the patients, had face masks a common personal protective gear for respiratory infection which at the moment is Corona virus.

The hospital went to default settings for hours, leaving the five Chinese patients, the police and a few unattended patients in the facility helpless.

Makueni County Health Chief Officer Patrick Musyoki however dismissed the claim as unfounded, saying there were no coronavirus patients admitted in the facility even before the test results were out. “There are no cases of coronavirus admitted to Makindu hospital as confirmed by the hospital management,” he said.

The five are reported to have been quarantined and a doctor assigned to monitor their condition. The five work at Sinohydro Corporation, the Chinese contractor building Kibwezi-Kitui Road.

This comes days after another Chinese National was quarantined at Mutomo Shopping Centre after arriving into the country from China over suspected coronavirus infection.

Samples were taken from the patients and taken to the National Influenza Laboratory in Nairobi for testing.
