Kenya Airways cancels China flights

Kenya Airways is canceling all flights to and from China due to the coronavirus.

Kenya Airways reported cancellation as of Friday of its flights between Nairobi and the Chinese city of Guangzhou (located about 1,000 kilometers from Wuhan, the epicenter of the epidemic) “until further notice.”

Kenya Airways made the decision after a student who left Wuhan last 20 and arrived on Tuesday on a flight from that airline to Jiro Kenyatta International Airport in Nairobi was quarantined at a hospital in the Kenyan capital on suspicion of being infected with the coronavirus.

The Kenyan Minister of Health, Sicily Kariuki, confirmed today that the results of the analysis of the suspect case have been “negative.”
