Fifteen students who recently arrived in Mombasa from Sudan have tested positive for coronavirus, officials said Thursday.

Mombasa Chief Executive for Health Khadija Shikely said the group was part of the 129 Kenyan students who were repatriated last weekend.

The students arrived at the Moi International Airport aboard a Kenya Airways flight on Saturday evening.

They were subjected to a mandatory health check upon landing at the airport aboard a Kenya Airways flight before they proceeded to the Kenya School of Government in Kizingarea for a mandatory 14-day quarantine.
