50 people were caught on camera scaling the walls of Kenya Medical Training College (KMTC), where they were placed on forced quarantine, pending their corona virus test results, as reported by Citizen TV Kenya.
Their escape puts to risk other people in Kenya, especially bearing in mind that they could be infected with corona virus.
Kenya has been in the fore front in the fight against the spread of corona virus with the introduction of 7:00 pm – 5:00 am curfew that bars people from remaining outside their homes after 7:00 pm or before 5:00 am. Anyone who infringes this rule will be arrested by the police and taken to forced quarantine on their bill, as it is assumed that they could be exposed to corona virus.
Just recently, another corona virus patient in Tamale, Northern Ghana escaped from quarantine, as reported by BBC.
Prof. Tara C. Smith, an epidemiologist at Kent State University’s College of Public Health says that some people infected with corona virus are asymptomatic, meaning that they don’t show symptoms and signs of corona virus, thus increasing the risk of spreading to others without knowing.
The police and authorities in Kenya are on the lookout for the 50 people, who escaped from KMTC quarantine center to bring them back to quarantine and further bring them to book.
