A Homabay man who was a principal at Ober boys high school has succumbed to Coronavirus.
We understand that Maurice Muhoro lost his life to the dreaded virus a while after holding a staff meeting at the school. Principal Maurice Muholo hosted a meeting which was attended by at least four other members of staff at the school – After the meeting, he travelled to his Migori home via Oyugis town where he reported he was not feeling well.
It has been confirmed that the Principal, Ober Boys Secondary School succumbed to COVID-19(I’m sorry I doubted this at first); and that one of his contacts, a teacher at the same school, has been confirmed Covid-19 positive and is at an isolation facility in Homabay County.
Now think about what the situation would have been like if schools were in session.
His condition worsened and he was transferred to Kisumu where he died before doctors could attend to him.
“He was referred to Agha Khan Hospital in Kisumu county but failed to get admission at the facility for lack of a comprehensive health insurance cover.
He was transferred to another private hospital within Kisumu. Tests were done on samples collected on the teacher and it turned positive. Health officers from the county government began contact tracing,”
