A Senior Pilot of the Kenya Airways and a Kenya Ports Authority Attendant were the latest to succumb to Covid-19 in Kenya.
The 63-year-old pilot had tested positive for the virus at the Nairobi hospital and was later put under isolation at the facility where he died while undergoing treatment.
The pilot is said to have interacted with two other colleagues who also tested positive and were admitted at the Nairobi hospital.
On the other hand, the KPA employee aged 68 succumbed to Covid-19 while undergoing treatment at a Mombasa hospital.
The woman is said to have been buried at the Mbaraka cemetery in a secret ceremony where only a few people attended.
Her daughter who is said to have come into contact with her is currently under quarantine and is set to undergo a covid-19 test.
The death of the KQ pilot and the KPA employee brought the total number of those who have succumbed to covid19 in Kenya to three.
The first patient to succumb to the virus was a 66-year-old man who died last week while undergoing treatment at a Nairobi facility.
Hitherto, Kenya has 110 confirmed cases where 28 people were tested positive on Thursday, April 2, 2020.
“23 of the confirmed cases were detected in the designated quarantine facilities while six are from suspected cases in isolation units. The ages of the confirmed cases range between ages 16-64,” announced CS Mutai Kagwe.
Globally, the total number of infected people has surpassed the 1 million mark, with the death toll hitting over 53,000. Over 203 countries have reported at least one case of the virus.
With the rates increasing every day, experts have warned that people should brace for tougher days.
However, keeping the social distance rule is still the gospel everyone is preaching. If you are feeling unwell, go for a test, if you are positive, isolate yourself and if you are healthy, just STAY AT HOME.
