Kenyans on Twitter have protested a move by the government to allow a Chinese plane land at JKIA.
The plane arrived in Nairobi on Wednesday with 239 passengers on board, who were screened for the deadly coronavirus.
“All 239 passengers were screened onboard, cleared and advised to self-quarantine for the next 14 days,” the Ministry of Health said.
A video of a China Southern Airlines plane landing at JKIA shared on social media sparking outrage among some Kenyans, who questioned the government’s efforts in protecting its citizen from coronavirus.
What kid of fuckery is this ? That we allow Chinese people running away from their own man-made laboratory virus to find safe haven in Kenya when our own Kenyans are on lock down ! #Wuhan #coronavirus #COVID19

By the time we realise its here, it will be too late. We can't even properly manage a cholera outbreak or even locusts for that matter.
The good thing is, its airborne and no one will be safe, including the people tasked with the responsibility currently and doing nothing

Who will monitor each of them incase they turn positive? Does GOK/MOH know anything about incubation period?

The incubation takes as long as 28 days. These foolish people at the ministry of health don't even know the latest developments of the virus incubation and spread. Joking with an epidemic
