A friend has just been released from Mbagathi hospital 👏👏She is now free of #coronavirus
So People, this is a happy me and a salute to health workers in Kenya.. This is why:
She had some symptoms and went for a test.

She was told the results will take some time and was told to check the next day.... So she got up the next day and went to work the following day. Meanwhile, her results came out positive and the guys called in a team from @MOH_Kenya
While at work, she started getting calls from strange numbers... They introduced themselves, asked where she was and asked her to stay put (She says they were really nice on phone). They did not tell her why they were looking for her though
When they finally got to her, they sat her down, told her about her results and reassured her..Asked her not to panic.Told her they needed to take her to an isolation centre.They gave her a mask and walked her to the car

Problem is, she has a child who was home...( 9 yrs) And that was her main worry, whether or not the baby was okay. So as the team took her to Mbagathi, another was dispatched to the baby.Meanwhile, she called a friend to take care of baby.
