A 27-year-old South African woman, who had been placed on a 14-day mandatory quarantine in Nakuru, was on Friday morning found dead in her room.
The body of the victim was found dangling from the rooftop of a hostel room at the Kenya Industrial Training Institute (KITI), officials said.
Nakuru County Health executive Gichuki Kariuki confirmed the death but did not give more details.
Health workers, who went to the institution Friday to check on those quarantined, say Ms Elizabeth Holloway committed suicide using a piece of cloth.
The woman had on Thursday complained that she had been quarantined in deplorable conditions, a source told the Nation.
"She called some officials and requested to be transferred," the source said.
