Kenya has lost yet another health worker to the deadly coronavirus.
Thirty two year old Marion Awuor died last week at the Kisii Teaching and Referral Hospital.
Awuor who was apparently pregnant had reported to the Homabay County Hospital with flu-like symptoms and tested positive to Covid-19.
She was however transferred to the Kisii Teaching and Referral Hospital where she she gave birth while on oxygen.
Kisii County Public Health Director Richard Onkware said the nurse tested negative two times after treatment at the hospital before she died.
“Unfortunately, we have lost her. One of her lungs collapsed due to Covid-19,” Dr Onkware said on Sunday.
Her baby was found negative after several tests but was placed in the nursery for close observation.
