Form four student dies of Covid-19 in Mumias as 10 others test positive. In a heartbreaking story appearing in the Standard newspaper, and as parents come to terms with the reality of Covid19 cases amongst students, one family is now mourning the loss of their daughter.

The  female form four student at Lureko Secondary School in Mumias West Constituency died of Covid-19 related complications.

Kakamega County Health Executive Dr Collins Matemba confurmed that parents of the student also tested positive for the virus and have been put on home-based care under close supervision.

“The student developed complications while at home and was taken to St Mary’s Mission Hospital in Mumias and later transferred to Lifecare Private Hospital in Bungoma.  But it was too little too late, she succumbed moments later,” Dr Matemba said.

In similar news, 10 more students tested positive of Covid19 within the county.

“A student from Mukumu Girls who had been admitted at St Elizabeth Mukumu Mission Hospital eloped with a boyfriend only for her samples taken earlier to test positive,” said Dr Matemba.

In another development, the doctors’ union in Kenya has accused the government of not protecting healthcare workers who are treating Covid-19 patients, after the deaths of four medical practitioners last week.
