Govt denies that 17 MPs tested positive for Coronavirus

George Bush spoke about pandemic flues in 2005 and still, the World was never ready for Coronavirus. Even the British Prime Minister is fighting for his life, so it does not come as a surprise when reports of Government members being infected comes out. But is it true or it’s one of those things? The Kenyan Government has denied reports appearing in the media that 17 members of Parliament had tested positive for Coronavirus (Covid-19).

Chief Administrative Secretary Mercy Mwangangi from the Health Ministry said there were no reports from Lancet Laboratories, who carried out the tests, of anyone testing positive for the Coronavirus.

“It is important to ensure that labs follow protocols (in revealing test results). As it stands, we have no formal reports of (confirmed positive cases in private labs),” she said.

Lancet Group of Laboratories chief executive officer and chief consultant pathologist Ahmed Kalebi said testing was voluntary and results were given to each MP in confidence.

“The information circulating in the media about Covid-19 confirmed cases at Parliament is completely incorrect, misleading and should be disregarded,” he said.

And added: “In particular the information circulating both in terms of purported numbers and names of people who have allegedly tested positive for Covid-19 is entirely false.”

Kenya currently has 179 confirmed cases of Covid-19, with 9 people who recovered and 6 deaths recorded.
