Recovered COVID-19 man demands Ksh.25 million from government after hospital made blunder

A man from Isiolo going by the name Osman Shariff who recovered from the deadly and feared Coronavirus is demanding Ksh. 25 million as compensation from the government.

The businessman who was the first Coronavirus case in Isiolo has blamed the government for his family and business suffering stigma after a hospital made public his Coronavirus details at the time.

The 62-year old wholesale vender and matatu owner claimed that the healthcare workers at the Garbatula Hospital where he was quarantined took photos of him and shared his Coronavirus status on social media.

Despite being the first case in the County and recovering from the virus, Mr. Shariff stated that since he was discharged in May, people have been avoiding him, his family, and his business which has caused his income to nose-dive.

He added that the public has also shunned away from boarding his matatus that ply the Garbatula-Maua route.

The businessman disclosed that he has since tested negative following two tests that did not indicate any signs of him having the virus.

Speaking from Isiolo, Mr. Shariff mentioned that his daughter was almost beaten to death in Maua Town after angry members of the public accused her of being from a Coronavirus infected family.

He also revealed how one of the hotels in Isiolo Town denied him accommodation due to his previous COVID-19 status.

He stated that his daughter has since been trying to recover from the stigma she has been going through and the fear she was injected by the members of the public in Maua Town.

Isiolo Governor Mohammed Kuti on Monday 11 asked for forgiveness from Mr. Shariff while condemning the healthcare workers for sharing private information to the public.

“The patient had traveled by bus from Isiolo Town to Garbatula with further reports indicating that he had spent a night in one of the lodges in Isiolo Town after arriving from Eastleigh in Nairobi,” he explained.
