45 Mombasa county health workers test COVI-19 positive for the past three months.

Mombasa county Health County Executive Committee (CEC) member Hazel Koitaba said out of the number, 35 were from private hospitals within the county.

This raises questions over the safety of frontline workers in the fight against the virus that has continued to ravage the country.


“Out of the 45 health workers who tested positive, about 10 per cent of them came from private health practitioners,” Koitaba said.
