“With the outbreak of the coronavirus we have had the proposal to make available Ksh.1.8billion to airlift our students from China and put up a hospital on Mbagathi Way to quarantine them first,” Muia said.

Mr. Muia made the sentiments where he was summoned before the Parliament`s National Planning and Finance Committee on Thursday

If the request is granted, then part of the money will be used to bring back the Kenyan students who are currently trapped in Hubei in China, where the deadly virus broke out.
