Elsewhere, a female student at Mawego Technical Training Institute in Homa Bay County also tested positive for coronavirus.
Reports had hinted that the student returned to school with signs of a slight fever and cold, prompting the institution`s principal to isolate her and reported the matter to health surveillance officers.
The student is among the final year learners who reported back to school on October 5 to prepare for their final examination, which kicked on Monday.
“She came to school when she had slight fever and cold, which made the principal to suspect her and put her on a holding room separate from the other students,” Homa Bay County executive in charge of Health Richard Muga said
