According to Kagwe the new eight cases also include two French tourists who were tested in a hotel in Diani Beach. Structure that was forty, including 7 other tourists and staff. Among the others affected by the virus there is also a Mexican citizen.
"In the last 72 hours we have received confirmation of 8 other cases that tested positive for the coronavirus. 
This brings the total number of infected to 15."
The eight new cases would be people between the ages of 20 and 57 who would have arrived in Kenya from Europe and America between 4 and 17 March.
