(start of  Bryan’s statement) “It has come to my attention that the outbreak of Hepatitis B is real at Stage Shopping Centre near main campus, after some people from that area reported positive with the disease yesterday. Some were admitted while others treated and allowed to go home but under strick medication.

This emerged after they reported to Mediheal Hospital at Eldoret Town and it raised alarm and we were contacted to see how we can alert other members on the same, being the leads at the community we are always tasked to see the livelihood is upheld to utmost point needed through communicating relevant information to the uninformed.

We’ve taken steps since yesterday by alerting the Public Health officer who is undertaking his work by getting to understand the cause especially from Stage where I am concerned with the area MCA Hon Hillary Mutai.

We are concerned because Stage has the largest population of students and locals which poses a threat to many. We were notified that Springs Hostels at Stage was the place of residence of the sick guys who reported at the hospital after our fine research. Now I would like to convey the same to students who reside near that residential hostels and it’s environs to take note and care.
We are informing the management of University at the same time the County Government of Uasin Gishu on the same so as to act on it promptly.
