Chinese in Kenya want to go back to their country fearing they could be infected with the naval virus in Nairobi. The said, the country cannot contain the virus, already the hospitals are full with less than 5,000 cases.

More than 400 Chinese nationals are planning to leave the country this coming week over fears of Covid-19.

Already Chinese have obtained an order from a High Court in Nairobi directing the Kenya government to allow them to leave on June 16, claiming that Kenya’s health system cannot handle the Covid-19 pandemic.

Justice Weldon Korir issued an order after the Chinese sought special permission to allow evacuation flights to take them home.

They contended that Kenya’s health system cannot handle huge infection numbers if the pandemic spreads rapidly in the country.

“They have underlying conditions and others just don’t feel safe here,” he said. “All the isolation centres are full, testing and contact tracing is a big deal to the Kenyan government. Let them just go back home as they so wish,” said Mr Isaac Okinyo, their lawyer.
