COVID-19 claims 3 lives in Thika within the last 48 hours.

Three people have succumbed to the deadly COVID-19 in Thika within the last 48 hours.

On Tuesday, a 71-year old Kiboko estate was rushed to hospital and after a while succumbed. Test results later came out positive of COVID-19.

The second case is that of a 65-year old man from Kiganjo Muthaiga area who succumbed to the disease while undergoing treatment at Thika Level 5 Hospital. He will be buried today at their Matuu home in accordance to the Ministry of Health directives.

His wife has already tested positive and is undergoing treatment at the same hospital.

Last night a 64-year old from Kiandutu also died at the Thika Level 5 Hospital.

Information reaching our news desk indicate that the Thika Public Health Officials are busy making arrangements of how these people will be buried and later embark on a contact tracing exercise in all the affected areas.

There is also going to be fumigation in areas that they might have gotten into contact.

Residents are cautioned to strictly adhere to the guidelines set by the Health Ministry avoid contracting the disease. Anyone who thinks they got into any of these cases should seek for testing or visit any hospital.

However, there should not be any cause of alarm or any form of stigmisation as the disease is treatable and not necessarily a death sentence.

In yesterday press briefing by the Ministry of Health where 173 new COVID-19 cases were reported, Thika had registered 3 of them.
