COVID 19 fear in Dandora as man collapses and dies shortly after alighting from matatu

Residents of Wamulembe, Dandora Phase Three are engulfed in fear of coronavirus infection after a middle-aged man collapsed and died shortly after alighting from a matatu.

The unidentified man is said to have traveled from Buruburu to Dandora Phase Three where the incident occurred.

Witnesses at the scene said the man looked dizzy and tired and tried to borrow a mobile phone from people by the roadside with no success.

Even after reporting the matter to the authorities, Police Officers refused to collect the body forcing residents to demonstrate on the streets.

The body was later collected by health officials in protective gear on Tuesday afternoon.

The latest comes as cases of suspected coronavirus patients dropping dead are on the rise. On Friday, a woman collapsed and died while washing clothes at Mlolongo, Machakos county.

Yet again, on Tuesday, a police officer guarding Equity Bank branch in Meru collapsed and died in unclear circumstances.

According to the North Imenti Sub County Police Commander Robinson Mboloi, the officer died in a washroom at around 12.30 pm.

“The officer on duty collapsed and died inside the bank. We are yet to establish the cause of his sudden death. The body has been taken to the Meru Level 5 Hospital Mortuary,” Mr Mboloi said.

The banking hall was later cordoned by the Meru County Covid-19 response team for precautions regarding the spread of the deadly virus.
