A number of Kenyans did not hide their joy and excitement on Monday, after the Kenyan government confirmed four positive coronavirus cases at State House.
While some expressed their worries and fears over the news which went viral, a number of netizens took to their social media accounts to express their joy in the news.
State House spokesperson Kanze Dena confirmed that the four cases were recorded during a mass COVID-19 testing held on Thursday, June 11. The infected persons were admitted at the Kenyatta University Teaching, Referral, and Research Hospital in Kiambu County for treatment.
“The tests are conducted on all staff including His Excellency the President and members of his family,” said Kanze Dena, in a statement.
She also assured the public that President Uhuru Kenyatta and the First Family were safe and free from COVID-19, even as the total number of COVID-19 infections in Kenya on Monday rose to 3,727 after 133 more patients tested positive for the disease.
Health Cabinet Secretary Mutahi Kagwe, speaking in Nyandarua on a tour of the county’s health facilities, said a total of 3,365 samples were tested within the last 24 hours.
Here are samples of celebratory comments from a number of netizens on social media app, Twitter.
