The Health Ministry has said that the tests carried out on 3 people suspected to have contacted coronavirus came back negative.

Mombasa Chief Health Officer said the patient Shukri Jamal Mahmood will remain in isolation at the Coast hospital.

Medics who attended to the patients were also asked to inform the authorities if they started to experience coronavirus-like symptoms.
