The National Government has spoken out on a go-slow that was witnessed at Mbagathi Hospital on Monday morning. 

Speaking during a press release in Nairobi, Government spokesperson Cyrus Oguna stated that the situation had been sorted out. 

He said that the nurses who had gone slow on their duties were not the ones who are dealing with cases related to the virus. 

“They have been given the required equipment and as from tomorrow they will be trained on how to deal with the situation,” Mr Oguna said. 

According to him, the confirmed Coronavirus cases in the country were three but three more people were feared to have contacted the disease, 

He said that chances that the other three were positive were high since they had shown signs and symptoms related to the disease. 

Mr Oguna said that 20 patients were still under quarantine and health experts were still keeping a close eye on them. 

On Monday morning the Nation reported that nurses at Mbagathi Hospital Isolation wing were on a go-slow. 

The nurses are said to be complaining of the lack of adequate coronavirus training and little support was being issued to protect their families who they go home to every evening after working near potential patients suffering from the virus. 

Kenya has so far confirmed three cases- one was confirmed on Friday last week with two others on Sunday.
