52 KCSE candidates have tested positive for COVID-19 at Kolanya Boys High School in Busia County.
K24 was first to report the outbreak on Tuesday, November 3. The cases were reported from 100 tested samples in the school.
Busia chief officer for health services Dr Isaac Omeri said all the patients are in stable condition at an isolation centre.
Six teachers and two non-teaching staff also contracted the disease bringing the total tally of cases recorded at the school to 60.
Medics affirmed that the infected were placed under quarantine. The health officers also initiated contact tracing.
These cases come four days after 11 cases were reported at Friends School Kamusinga and 6 at Kimili Boys High School in Bungoma County.
Two teachers, from Mombasa and Kakamega, also succumbed to the virus.
Education CS George Magoha has insisted that schools will reopen despite Kenya recording an upsurge in Covid-19 daily cases.
The CS refuted claims by headteachers that students were ungovernable in schools as they only resorted to adhering to health protocols, washing hands, sanitising and social distancing while under strict supervision.
