Athletes barred from leaving Kenya for a month

Kenya has banned its athletes from leaving the country to participate in international events for the next month as a measure to prevent coronavirus spreading.

“Following the global outbreak of the Covid-19 virus, the government has put in place measures to deal with the situation to safeguard the public and the country at large,” the Sports Ministry said in a statement.

“The ministry wishes to inform you that there will be no more travel for international events until further notice and notably for the next one month.” it added.

One of the main events they may miss if the ban is extended is the London Marathon on 26 April.
