Patrick Amoth Corona virus Kenya
Patrick Amoth has been on the front-line in trying to ensure that Kenyans are informed about the ongoing Corona virus pandemic. Just when the virus has kicked in Kenya, he did his best in ensuring that the laboratories at the national health laboratories had sufficient kits and requirements and were ready to test samples for the Corona virus.
By 17th March 2020, there were 20 patients at the Infectious Disease Unit, most of them who complained of poor sanitation, lack of communication and delayed tests. Some patients even packed their bags and threatened to storm out.
The situation has since been handled in a better way. The major complaint right now is from the general public, with Kenyans lamenting how the government has abandoned them in this difficult time.
Since most of them have no source of income now, they are forced to sleep on empty stomachs with some even being kicked out of their houses for failing to pay rent. They claim that the government has turned a deaf ear to them at a time they need its help the most.
