For months, healthcare workers have reportedly been demanding a safer working environment, as well as medical insurance. The country has lost its twelfth specialist after Nira Pital, one of the country’s top dental surgeons who specialised in orthodontics, died of Covid-19-related complications. Her death came barely hours after that of Dr Anthony Were Omolo, a nephrologist and head of the renal unit at the Kenyatta National Hospital. It has also been revealed that doctors infected with the novel coronavirus are being forced to continue treating patients. Union officials have said asymptomatic doctors are required to continue working, adding that people with other ailments visiting hospitals may have contracted the virus from those who are supposed to treat them.
