Three suspected case of the deadly Coronavirus have been reported in Kenya today.

The first was reported in Mombasa with the individual admitted at the Coast General Hospital.

Nation reports that the suspect is admitted at the private wing of the facility.

Samples from the casualty have been taken for analysis in Nairobi.

In the latest development, two more people have been quarantined at the Kenyatta National Hospital after they landed at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) with a high fever.

The two patients arrived in the country from China and were taken to hospital amid fears that the deadly virus could become worse.

One reportedly came from Beijing aboard a Kenya Airways flight while the other arrived on Southern China Airlines from China.

The first case was reported in late January when a student who left Wuhan for Zhangjiajie City on January 20, traveled to Nairobi through Guangzhou in China and Bangkok in Thailand and landed in Nairobi on 27 January.

He was taken to hospital with samples flown out for further testing which proved negative.
