The World Health Organisation has warned that the yellow fever outbreak in Angola poses a "threat to entire world".
Nearly 2,000 people are thought to be suffering from yellow fever in the southern African nation, as health experts investigate the outbreak that began in December.
According to WHO, thousands of people are suspected to have been infected with the disease while 238 people have died from the mosquito-borne illness.
The outbreak has spread to nearly every province in the country.
Medical personnel at Nairobi’s Jomo Kenyatta International Airport allowed a sick man into the country without sending him to an isolation area, despite noticing he was unwell.
Just three days later, the man who had yellow fever died at the Kenyatta National Hospital (KNH) where he had been taken for treatment by his family.
The officials at JKIA picked his contacts for follow-up on realising that he was coming from Angola, a country where yellow fever had killed 250 people.
