(KDRTV)-A patient of Chinese origin has been isolated in a ward in Agha Khan Hospital in Kisumu City over a fear of coronavirus infection
The patient is a Chinese man who is a worker at the Ugunja, Siaya county and is said to have been taken to the health facility on Thursday evening by an unidentified woman.
By the time the Chinese national was being admitted to the Hospital, he was in protective gear to prevent further spread of the deadly virus if there any
However, doctors in the facility said that the Chinese man was being treated of pneumonia even as he continues to be in isolation
Since then, samples have been taken to Nairobi to ascertain whether the man is a victim of coronavirus or not
The result form the samples are expected to be disclosed on Fridays
Our media team has not managed to get in touch with the managing director of the health facility, Dr. Patrick Eshiwahi since by the time we tried to call him, he was held in a meeting.
The deadly coronovirus started in Chinese Hubei province and has since spread to other countries including Egypt, USA and France among other countries.
There are many countries who have since suspsended their flight to China amid fear of coronavirus infection.
