The High Court has ordered the suspension of flights from China until further notice.
The order was issued Friday, in a case filed by the Law Society of Kenya, following uproar from Kenyans after a China Southern Airlines landed at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport with 239 passengers.
The court subsequently ordered that all the passengers be rounded up and taken to a military health facility for quarantine until they are declared safe to mingle with other people.
President Uhuru Kenyatta has also ordered the completion of Mbagathi Hospital isolation wards in seven days.
Ministry of Defence is set to deploy KDF medical personnel to take charge of all entry points including airports, maritime ports and all border points to contain possible coronavirus outbreak.
Coronavirus has killed more than 2,800 people and infected more than 83,000 worldwide.
