Four people earlier suspected to be COVID-19 positive in Nakuru have been discharged from hospital.
The four were gotten out of hospital on Tuesday, March 17 after spending two weeks under a compulsory quarantine at the Nakuru Level 5 Hospital.
They had manifested the typical symptoms of the dreaded illness like long bouts of coughing, sneezing and fever.
Nakuru County Director of Health Dr. Elizabeth Kiptoo said the four were discharged after tests’ results confirmed they were negative.
To curb further transmission of the virus, Madam Florence Basweti who is in charge of public health at the Nakuru Level 5 Hospital said no visitor was allowed in easily and when they spotted the need, only one person would be allowed to get in to check on the four while in isolation.
“This is one of the measures we have put in place to minimise chances of infection,” Basweti said.
Basweti also added that at least 14 beds have been set aside at the hospital in readiness to respond to any arising case.
