Dr Shikely now wants parents in Mombasa to be cautious and ensure their children stay safe indoors so as not to contract the virus while playing outside their homes.
Anxiety has now gripped parents in the county that continues to record a spike in the infections ever since the three children aged between five and nine years old were admitted to Technical University of Mombasa (TUM) Covid-19 isolation centre.
But to limit interactions in the ward marked as red zone, parents with infected children are separated from other Covid-19 patients.
Doctors said parents with Covid-19 positive children are considered positive because of their interactions with the patients.
Speaking during an exclusive interview with the Nation at the TUM Covid-19 centre, Dr Shikely said that in the wards, the positive children have been separated from adults.
