  8. Kisumu-4

At the same time, MoH revealed that total number of coronavirus deaths rose to 420 after 2 more patients succumbed to the respiratory disease

During his speech, Health CS Mutahi Kagwe noted that the ministry is aware that there are health officers from the private sector who collude with families to provide COVID-19 negative results where relatives had succumbed to COVID-19 in a bid to facilitate normal burial

“We are aware that there are doctors, in the private sector who are undermining the process of protecting families by exploiting their emotions and colluding with some of them to ensure burials are done normally.

Bidding loved one’s farewell is important to all of us but it should not end with greater pain or loss of more lives. Wearing a mask and following health directives is not a favour to any law enforcement officer,” said Kagwe.
