Health DG Dr Patrick Amoth says the five cases were picked up on Thursday last week on arrival in the country before the ban on flights from India was imposed.

The area has been reinforced in collaboration with public health officials in Kisumu county to ensure the variant does not spread.

“This variant has been picked in Kenya and because of connectivity, it was just a matter of time. You cannot be able to put barriers to prevent a virus from accessing your territory,” Amoth said.

“We picked this from a sample of Indian travellers who are doing some work in the western part of Kisumu. We have gone ahead together with the Kisumu county health team to do contact tracing.”

The results of the genome sequencing that is ongoing at the KEMRI Walter Reed in Kisumu are expected in a week.
