Kenya celebrates two patients who fully recovered from COVID-19. Their last two tests were negative. According to the Health CS Mutahi Kagwe when he was announcing the increased number to 81, he said Kenya can fight the disease.

Two of Kenya’s coronavirus patients who recovered from the COVID-19 disease have spoken to the public for the first time since leaving the Mbagathi District Hospital isolation centre.

In a televised address, the two patients updated President Uhuru Kenyatta via a Skype link on their successful experience.

Brenda Cherotich, a former Miss Tourism Kericho County and the first Kenyan patient believe she contracted the virus in London while returning to Kenya from the United States.

“I think I got the virus in London on my way to Nairobi when I came back I stayed for a day and then reported to the Mbagathi Hospital and they took me seriously,” she said.

“I want to tell Kenyans that this virus is manageable and people might have mild symptoms like a cough and a slight headache, so people should not really be afraid, we will pull through,” she added.

The second patient, Brian, who says he was infected by Brenda, says he was taken to the isolation centre shortly after the test results for Brenda came back.

“Coronavirus is real, please follow what the government is saying because that is the only way to beat the disease,” Brian explained.
