Media personality and Citizen TV anchor Jeff Koinange has tested positive for coronavirus.
Koinange broke the news through a tweet on Monday. He, however, said he was asymptomatic.
“Folks, just to let you know, I have tested POSITIVE for Covid-19. I’m doing Good..NO symptoms…and my Family is fine. All my close contacts have been informed. Right now I’m in self-isolation. Many thanks to Royal Media Services Management for its Support. Stay SAFE & God Bless!” he tweeted.
Koinange is the second journalist from Citizen TV to go public about his Covid-19 status after reporter Stephen Letoo.
Letoo , who has been at the forefront in covering the Covid-19 pandemic, made the announcement on Friday.
Letoo also said he did not have any symptoms when he decided to go to Nairobi Hospital and get tested on Thursday.
“I did not have any signs and even now I don’t have any signs. I am fine and I have my appetite like before. You might even think that I am pretending,” he told the Star.
“I can’t trace and explain how I got it but upon doing the tests at Nairobi Hospital, it turned out that I had contacted the virus.”
Koinange’s announcement comes on a day when Health CAS confirmed 19 fatalities from Covid-19 in the last 24 hours and 418 others new positive cases.
The total confirmed cases now stand at 13,771, while deaths at 238.
