  • Health Chief Administrative Secretary Mercy Mwangangi has announced the death of a six-year-old boy who succumbed to Covid-19 related complications.

    While addressing the media at Afya House on Friday, April 3, the CAS informed that the child suffered from a pre-existing medical condition, which resulted from immunosuppression which affects the bone marrow.

    The boy becomes the youngest reported person to have succumbed to the virus since the outbreak in the country.

    Health Director-General Patrick Amoth informed that the boy had other symptoms, which medics chose to prioritise. His samples tested positive after the child had died.

    Amoth informed that doctors and nurses who had handled the child have been isolated and the room the boy was held in fumigated.
