Kenya on Friday reported its first case of the novel coronavirus. Health Secretary Mutahi Kagwe said on Friday in a televised speech that a 27-year-old female national who had returned from the U.S. via London has tested positive.

“The case was confirmed on the 12th of March,” he said, adding that “the patient is stable, her temperature has gone down to normal.”
