Top Kenya media personality, news anchor, and Journalist Jeff Koinange tests positive for the COVID-19 Coronavirus infection.
Jeff Koinange is one of the most popular journalists in Kenya who hosts the show dubbed JKL Live. According to a recent post on his social media twitter handle, he announced that he tested positive for COVID-19. Along with this, he assured his fans that he is under isolation and also, that he is doing well.
Below is the tweet by Jeff Koinange about his status of coronavirus.
“Folks, just to let you know, I have tested positive for Covid-19. I am doing Good. No symptoms…and my family is fine. All my close contacts have been informed. Right now I am in self-isolation. Many thanks to Royal Media Services management for its support. Stay safe and God bless!”
On the other hand, Royal Media Services has since been following the directives by the government on preventing the spread of Coronavirus. This is to ensure all its staffs are safe and secure whenever they report to duty as well as when they leave the premises. For instance, there are sanitization spots from the gate, the reception area, editors’ rooms, studio, and so on. Again, all the staff undergo screening on a daily basis whenever they arrive on the premises.

The big question is whether Jeff Koinange might have infected other journalists in Royal Media Services and his family. Last but not least, most of the Kenyans who follow him on twitter responded with good wishes. This is because Kenyan journalists have been on the front line to educate Kenyans about COVID-19.
Again, Mediamax Networks that owns K24 TV Kenya recently sent out a memo to all its staff. Below is what the internal memo as published on 13th of July, 2020 read.
“Please be informed that one employee In the Finance Department has tested positive for Covid-19 after exhibiting mild symptoms. The employee has already self-isolated in accordance with home-based care guidelines.”
