Kenyans are currently furious with their government after a plane from China was allowed to land in the country at a time when China is fighting Coronavirus.
The government of Kenya had on Wednesday announced that China Southern Airlines had resumed its flights from Guangzhou to Nairobi, an area which is affected by a coronavirus.
According to a report gathered, flight from Guangzhou has four flights a week.
The Ministry of Health on Wednesday took the 239 passengers to quarantine for 14 days after being cleared at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport.
The World Health Organisation had revealed that the symptoms begin to appear 14 days after contracting the virus.
Kenyans got furious due to the fear that the country might not be able to contain the highly contagious virus if it is imported.
They took to their social media platforms to express displeasure over the development, claiming that the government is risking their lives.
