The announcement of Kenya’s first confirmed case of Covid-19 caused by coronavirus has caused anxiety in the country.
The authorities said the patient – a Kenyan citizen who arrived in the country on 5 March from the US – was receiving treatment and that those she had been in contact with have been traced.
Despite also reassuring the public that measures to deal with an outbreak had been put in place, some people have chosen to stock up on supplies.
A tweeter has shared this video of a packed supermarket in the capital Nairobi.
Local news site Nairobi News reports that several supermarkets have run out of hand sanitiser.
