State House officials have test positive for coronavirus in Kenya, marking this the first publicly-acknowledged Covid-19 infections at the top national government office

State House spokesperson Kanze Dena said four officials whose identities will remain concealed tested positive and currently under treatment at the Kenyatta University Teaching, Referral and Research Hospital in Kiambu County.

They tested positive for Covid-19 following a screening conducted last week.

“During last week’s mass Covid-19 testing held on Thursday, 11th June 2020, four persons were found to have contracted the disease…Families and close contacts of the affected officers are also being attended to accordingly,” Ms Dena said in a statement.

She also noted that President Uhuru Kenyatta and the first family are “safe and free from Covid-19”.
State House has rolled out un-disclosed protocols for all visitors and staff residing outside the compound in an effort to curb more infections, said Dena.
