When CS Mutahi Kagwe announced the outbreak of Coronavirus yesterday, Kenyans were thrown in a panic mode and plans to trace of the movements of the patient began. However the CS did not give the name of the infected woman but only said she landed at JKIA on March 5th after traveling from US. He also stated that the plane carrying the woman and other passengers made a stop over in London. Its from here the woman took a plane to JKIA.
Reports surfacing through the media had indicated that the woman in question had traveled to her rural home in Kitale using the Nakuru-Eldoret- Kitale highway after landing in Kenya. It was said she then came back to Nairobi on 9th March.

In a video that has widely been shared online, the woman is seen in a house settings with her family.
“My name is Jane and I just want to say something, I don’t have Coronavirus. I am okay. ” She stated
“Yes I recently traveled to Kitale but i did not use a bus I used a private jet. All the time i was in Kenya I used my dad’s car and my driver is right here. I went to Kitale, Eldoret, Keiyo back to Kitale and flew to Nairobi via safari Link and we don’t have Corona.” She ascertained.
