Pumwani Maternity Hospital medics test COVID-19 positive as stated by Acting Health Director-General Dr Patrick Amoth.


Dr Patrick Amoth on Tuesday said that 41 healthcare workers from the facility tested positive from 290 samples.


He said the remaining 100 staff members will also be tested.


“All these 41 have been on home home-based care isolation and two have been discharged from home-based isolation care. The remaining 39 are doing well,” Dr Amoth said.


The cases involve different staffers who work within the premises of the hospital, including 14 nurses, 2 medical officers, 2 clinical officers, and a laboratory officer.


He added that the government will support all troubled healthcare workers.


The DG said currently 429 health workers have been exposed to Covid-19.


"We continue to support them. Some are on home-based care while others are in hospitals. We are giving them psychological support," he said.


"This is to make sure that after they recuperate, they can be able to come back to our hospitals and help us in this fight."
