A South African woman has been put under forced quarantine after she escaped from Jomo Kenyatta international Hospital before getting cleared.

According to the police report, the 27-year old lady jetted into the country from South Africa on Monday but sneaked out of the airport without getting clearance from the Immigration office.

The woman is said to have entered her car that she had parked at the JKIA and drove off to Mai Mahiu in Naivasha.

The police say they traced the woman and found her in a firm in Mai Mahiu where she has been working.

“We managed to trace her and she has been placed under quarantine in Kiti in Nakuru and she will definitely be charged after the 14 days,” said Naivasha sub-county commissioner Mathioya Mbogo.

The woman is among the people who have been branded names for putting the health of Kenyans at risk due to their carelessness.

Last week Kilifi deputy Governor and a Catholic Priest were on the spot for putting the lives of over 300 Kenyans at risk when they failed to observe the 14-day self-quarantine rule after jetting into the country from foreign countries.

The Kilifi county deputy Governor Gideon Saburi interacted with most officials in Kilifi County including Governor Amason Kingi. All those he had interacted with deputy governor were forced to go self-quarantine for 14 days as required by WHO public Health and Safety standards.

The Catholic Priest Father Richard Oduor, on the other hand, jetted into the country from Rome, Italy interacted with friends in Nairobi and then went to Siaya County for a burial service. Over 100 people took the sacrament that day.

The Kilifi county deputy governor and the Catholic priest both revealed the places they had visited and the people they interacted and the number came close to 300 people.

Following the incidences, the Ministry of Health said it has subjected all those who enter the country from foreign countries to mandatory isolation at Government designated facilities.

Hitherto, Kenya has 31 confirmed Covid19 cases. One patient has since succumbed to the virus while another has recovered, bringing the active cases to 29.
