“Our Health Promotion Officer has managed to contact the patient reported in the media today as COVID-19 positive and a resident of Samburu. Upon being interviewed, He reported he was tested in Isiolo County on Friday the 24th of July 2020 en route to his workplace in Moyale, where he works with the Border Control Unit as an administrative Police officer,” Samburu CDH said.

MoH also revealed that the ministry had taken precautionary measures and would test staff at the Archer’s Entry point.

The County governor disagrees with MoH on coronavirus cases.

Governor Lenolkulal further claimed that Samburu county does not have coronavirus cases contrary to the MoH announcement on Saturday.

“The sample is not actually from Samburu. It is not among the samples that we sent to Nairobi. From reliable sources, the contacts have been traced to Forole, Marsabit. We are, however, trying to strengthen testing, and we hope we will not have any cases. We have isolation centers, and we have also bought ventilators,” he said.
