A Kenyan nurse has succumbed to COVID-19 days after delivering her first born baby while undergoing treatment for the disease in hospital.
Local media report that the nurse was admitted at a hospital west of the capital, Nairobi, and had initially tested negative for Covid-19.
Her condition worsened and she was admitted to another facility where she tested positive and was hospitalised.
She delivered her baby and was admitted to the Intensive Care Unit where she later succumbed. Doctors and nurses have eulogised the late nurse:
Marian Awuor Adumbo, a nurse working at Rachuonyo Sub County Hospital was admitted at Homabay County Hospital with flu-like symptoms in pregnancy, where she tested negative for Covid-19.
