12 Students In Isolation After Classmate Tests Positive For Covid-19


A form Four student at Muumandu Secondary School, Machakos County tested positive for Covid-19. 16 people who interacted with him have been isolated.

The medical team took the student to his home at Kee village in Kaiti sub-county, Makueni County.

“The teachers’ samples were taken for testing. Twelve students who shared classes and a dormitory with the boy were tested and put in isolation,” read part of the letter.

Within two days of the confirmation of the case, medical personnel fumigated the school and also trained teachers and staff on measures to curb the spread of the virus.

Machakos Health Executive, Ancent Kituku, said the schools in the county are prepared to tackle the virus.

Mr Kituku confirmed the cases of Covid-19 in two schools in the county. However, he said all patients are asymptomatic.

“I caution the public, especially those on social media, against publishing patients’ names to prevent stigmatisation and anxiety as this can lead to many other problems,” Kituku said.
