Kenya Airways has finally suspended flight to and from Guangzhou, China following the coronavirus outbreak.
Kenyans on social media had lamented to KQ to stop flights from China after a student was suspected to have the virus after landing at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA).
“We have temporarily suspended all flights to and from Guangzhou starting Friday 31 January 2020, until further notice,” said Kenya Airways.
The airline also maintained that the flights from Nairobi Kenya to Bangkok will still operate as they take high precaution.
A sigh of relief also after the tests results from student who was suspected to have the virus came in as negative after Kenya sought validation in South Africa.
Other countries including France and Germany were the first to suspend flights to Coronavirus hit zone in China.
Kenya is reported to have Africa’s sixth-highest risk of receiving a case of the new coronavirus imported from China, according to a new modelling study produced by Northeastern University in the US.
