The Speaker of the National Assembly Justin Muturi has revealed that two MPs have been confirmed to be Covid-19 positive.
In a communication to the House on Tuesday, Muturi said the first case has been discharged from hospital and is currently in self isolation.
The second case was taken ill but is now in stable condition, recuperating in the general wards. “Information available to the Office of the Speaker indicate that, we have two cases of the virus that have been reported among Members of Parliament,” Muturi said.
Muturi said the medical details of individuals, including Members of Parliament, are confidential and ought to be treated as such.
“Additionally, the media should desist from sensationalizing the cases in Parliament as thought these cases were any different from the rest of the cases in the country,” he said.
