If you have coronavirus kind of symptoms or even virus you will be treated and the expenses covered  by your insurance.

This is after the Insurance Regulatory Authority said insurance firms will cover all policy holders.


Commissioner of Insurance Godfrey Kiptum said health insurers have agreed to cover medical costs of coronavirus victims in the country after the WHO declared the mysterious disease a pandemic.

Kenya reported its first case of the coronavirus on Friday with the Health Cabinet Secretary Mutahi Kagwe saying the patient is a Kenyan who travelled from US via London.

The patient is currently receiving treatment at the Kenyatta National Hospital and a rapid response team has been dispatched to Ongata Rongai where she resided.

Health insurers do  not cover epidemics and pandemics.
