There will be no travel to international events for the next month for Kenyan sportsmen and sportswomen over concerns about the global coronavirus outbreak, the country’s sports ministry has said.
The ministry said the travel ban will be “until further notice” but specified it was being applied immediately for a minimum of one month.
The ban will hit the Kenyan football team’s next away match against Comoros on 29 March, although they play the same opposition at home on 25 March – a match the country’s FA has already requested be cancelled.
Across Africa, various sporting events have been impacted as countries take measures to minimise the impact of the virus as it spreads around the world. (Text courtesy BBC)
