Quarantine Escapees in Kenya

Kenyans escaping from a coronavirus quarantine centre will be hunted down and sent back there, President Uhuru Kenyatta has said.
Those in forced quarantine have been complaining about poor conditions. They say some centres are not much better than prisons, with poor hygiene and complaints that social distancing is impossible because of overcrowding.
Others are angered about having to pay for their confinement, which costs between 20 (£16) and $100 a night - depending on the centre.
More than 400 people are currently in quarantine. They include people who arrived in the East African country from areas affected by the virus before it closed its borders and those found to have been in contact with a coronavirus patient.
