Kenyans on Twitter have protested a move by the government to allow a Chinese plane land at JKIA.

The plane arrived in Nairobi on Wednesday with 239 passengers on board, who were screened for the deadly coronavirus.

All 239 passengers were screened onboard, cleared and advised to self-quarantine for the next 14 days," the Ministry of Health said.

A video of a China Southern Airlines plane landing at JKIA shared on social media sparking outrage among some Kenyans, who questioned the government’s efforts in protecting its citizen from coronavirus.

In a statement, the Ministry of Health confirmed the resumption of China Southern flights to Kenya.
