The limitation produces results on April 9.
The declaration comes days after an English paper citing the English High Commission in Nairobi, indicated Kenya joining the 'red rundown'.
"The English High Commission has the lament to educate the Service (of International concerns) that Her Highness' administration has taken the choice to add Kenya to its Coronavirus related isolate list," peruses the assertion.
"Almost 33% of those testing positive have been conveying the B.1.351 variation which began in South Africa," it said.
Whoever Kenya has opted not to join dozens of countries that have either banned inbound flights or cut all passenger air travel due to a highly infectious new coronavirus strain.
Health Cabinet Secretary Mutahi Kagwe said Tuesday that Kenya has instead issued stricter measures for allowing in travelers from the UK over banning flights.
More than 53 countries across five continents had by December 22 shut their doors to UK travelers over the discovery of the mutant coronavirus strain.
“We have very strict travel measures with the UK which the US and the Europeans did not have. We are carefully observing every passenger travelling from there,” said Mr. Kagwe.
Countries, mainly from Europe suspended travel from Britain after the UK said it had discovered mutated variant of the novel coronavirus, which could be up to 70 percent more transmissible.
Mr. Kagwe reckons that Kenya needed additional recommendations from institutions like the World Health Organization (WHO) before taking steps such as flight bans.
“We will, therefore, make decisions based on scientific advice as well as any additional advice from WHO. We are not part of EU (European Union),” he added.
