Chinese Nationals traveling to Kenya issued with new directives

Any Chinese national who wishes to travel to Kenya should isolate themselves for a period of not less than 15 days.

Wu Peng, the Chinese Ambassador to Kenya, said, “The embassy would call the isolated citizens every morning to confirm they are at home.”

Additionally, he said that the visa section of the embassy is still open. But he did not confirm the number of Kenyans, who have traveled to Chine since the outbreak of Coronavirus late last year.

Peng was speaking to Kenyan editors when he confirmed that Kenyan citizens are safe. Also, he said that the government could offer resources for managing health sector.

Besides, he said, “I understand the concerns of families whose Kenyans are living and studying in China, more so the ones in Wuhan city. I wish to assert that all foreign nationals, including Kenyans, are safe in China.”

Association of Kenyan students in Wuhan pledged with the government last week to have them evacuated. They stated that they were out of supplies and were facing psychological torture.

One of the students said, “We are facing mental anguish as a result of staying in a place that is ravished with a deadly virus. It is hard to explain what we are going through.”

Another student said, “My supplies of basic needs are almost over. Even though I can manage to buy them, the costs have now doubled. Recently, I bought two cabbages at 25 RMB (Sh. 400).”

On Thursday 13 February 2020, Mr. Peng said that his government would offer medical care, daily supplies, and support for foreigners.

Peng said that it is safe for the students to stay in Wuhan China for a while to ensure effective self-protection. He noted that hasty movement could lead to more uncertainties.

He asked Kenyan students and citizens to seek help from local community authorities and universities who are on duty for 24 hours. They can also contact the Chinese Embassy in Kenya through their email address or social media platforms.

On Thursday 13 February 2020, 59, 885 people had been infected by the virus, with 1, 369 cases of death as a result of the disease.
