According to Makueni Health ECM Dr. Andrew Mulwa the case is of a 35 year old male who works at Konza Techno City and leaves within Malili town. 
“Today we have recorded our first COVID-19 case in our County and we visited the apartment as a group we have identified the people he came contact with. The patient will be taken to Makueni Level 4 Hospital and after this we shall do mass decontamination of all areas he has been visiting and because he has no history of travelling we shall do mass testing within Malili market”, said Mulwa. 
Mulwa added that the case doesn’t exhibit any symptoms thus they shall take the client into quarantine. 
“We shall do mass testing as this town lies along the busy Nairobi-Mombasa highway and we might have other cases within this town”, he said 
This case comes as the country marks 167 cases where Mulwa terms the case as community spread. 
Mukaa DCC Alaso Hussein Alaso who also confirmed the case called upon Makueni residents not to panic as they shall do all it takes. 
“I urge all residents from this area to follow the government directives so that we curb this menace”, Alaso said. 
He lauded Mulwa’s words promising that they shall disinfect all the areas where the victim has passed including his work place.
