With Kenya in its second wave of Coronavirus infections, the deadly virus continues to ravage the country’s economy and her wellbeing.
And as Director of Policy and Global Development of ISGlobal Rafael Vilasanjuan puts it, Coronavirus is “A Virus for the Rich and for the Poor”.
After Archbishop Anthony Muheria of Nyeri Archdiocese revealing that he is COVID-19 positive, vocal city lawyer Donald Kipkorir is the latest public figure tocontract the virus.
According to Prof. Makau Mutua who describes himself as Kipkorir’s “BFF- Best Friends Forever”, the lawyer is currently undergoing COVID-19 treatment at the Aga Khan University Hospital.
“I wish my BFF — the eminent lawyer @DonaldBKipkorir — a quick and full recovery from Covid-19. Thanks to the great staff at the Aga Khan University Hospital who’ve been giving him excellent care. He will completely recover and come back even stronger,” said Prof. Makau Mutua, in a tweet on Tuesday, November 17.
The governor of Nairobi, Mike Sonko, shared a video of him wishing him and everyone else suffering from Covid-19 a quick recovery.
“Rafiki yangu @DonaldBKipkorir na wakenya wote wanaougua maradhi ya corona tunawaeka kwa maombi popote pale mulipo na nawatakia uponyanji wa haraka.” He wrote
This comes at a day when Kenya recorded 925 new COVID-19 cases between Monday and Tuesday, bringing the total caseload in the country to 71,729.
The total COVID-19 recoveries in the country now stands at 47,252, while the death toll has risen to 1,302 after 15 people lost their lives on Tuesday.
