China Southern Airlines has suspended all its flights from China to Nairobi until further notice.

The decision follows coronavirus scare in the country as more passengers from China were expected to arrive.

Addressing the same issue, the Chinese Embassy in Kenya attributed the suspension to decreased volumes in passengers.

“On Feb 28th, 2020, Due to the decreasing volume of passenger flow, China Southern Airlines has made necessary adjustments by suspending flights connecting Guangzhou, Changsha, and Nairobi until further notice.”

The decision by the airlines comes barely days after 239 passengers arrived in the country from China.

Kenyans were angered by the decision to allow them to enter freely in fear that the health of people is at risk.

The government defended their action ordering the passengers to self-quarantine themselves for 14 days before interacting with people.

On Friday morning the High Court order the immediate quarantine of all the 239 passengers at a KDF facility.

They will only be accepted the facility once they are certified to risk-free and it is also determined by the court.
