NAIROBI, Kenya, Apr 12- Kenya has been added to the list of designated states for mandatory hotel quarantine in Ireland due to the increased infections of COVID-19.

Ireland said the new directive will be put to effect on Thursday and will see passengers arriving from Kenya prebooked in mandatory hotel quarantine before travel.

The new measures affect those who have been in a designated state at any time 14 days before arrival in Ireland or have traveled through an airport or port in a designated state.

“From 4am on 15 April, passengers arriving in Ireland from Kenya must have prebooked mandatory hotel quarantine before travel,” the Embassy in Nairobi said.
