Yesterday, a 21 year old died at Kangundo Hospital with symptoms similar to those of Covid-19. Tests by the Government (KEMRI) have come back NEGATIVE. Earlier tests in Kangundo showed he had a bacterial infection. He did NOT die from coronavirus. May he Rest in Peace.
It is important to remember that people are also sick from many many diseases and we will, as usual, still lose our friends and family from other illnesses.
Even as we take care we don’t get Covid-19, we must provide quality and life saving healthcare to the rest of our people.
Our health workers are CHAMPIONS working hard with the extra STRESS of coronavirus scares. We must RESPECT them and ensure that they are comfortable.
In Machakos, I am working on a system to provide them with the highest quality working environments and to compensate them for their WORK.
