"Arrangements are being made to return him to Kenya for treatment close to his family.
"The Ministry of Health is currently testing all truck drivers (cargo transporters) for Covid-19 who come into the country via various borders," read an excerpt of the statement.
Attempts by Kenyans.co.ke to call Government Spokesman Cyrus Oguna for a comment on the matter, were futile by the time of publishing.
