Kenya Broadcasting Corporation (KBC) TV host Bonnie Musambi says he has recovered after testing positive for COVID-19. In a tweet on 19 July, Musambi said that he got the disease more than three weeks ago and is currently in good health.
“It is done, now I can reveal. I tested positive for Covid-19 but now am healed. I got the disease more than three weeks ago but tested after defeating the symptoms. However, I isolated myself and now am well. My family is well and am glad to be back on my feet. Glory to God!” he wrote.
Musambi’s disclosure comes weeks after KBC announced two employees had tested positive for COVID-19.
“Despite our good efforts, it has emerged that two of our staff have tested positive for Covid-19. While appropriate protocols have been activated to prevent infection from the affected staff, the situation calls from enhanced personal responsibility within and outside to protect ourselves, colleagues and families,” an internal memo signed by Managing Director Naim Bilal read in part.
However, the identities of those affected were not divulged.
Other journalists who’ve tested positive for the virus include Citizen TV’s Jeff Koinange and Stephen Letoo
