The Kenyan medical fraternity is today mourning the death of a doctor due to Coronavirus (Covid-19).
Dr. Adisa Lugaliki, MBChB, MMed, Private Consultant Obstetrician and Gynaecologist at The Nairobi South Hospital succumbed to the contagious disease on the morning of Friday, July 10.
Confirming the heartbreaking news of her demise, Kenya Medical Practitioners, Pharmacists and Dentists Union (KMPDU) wrote a heartfelt message on their socials.
Dr. Lugaliki was a registered obstetrician and gynecologist with expertise in obstetric and gynecological procedures. She was completely involved with patient care and worked closely with other doctors to ensure comprehensive evaluation and treatment services for her patients.
Her colleagues have also taken to social media to express their messages of condolences while describing her as “a young doctor” with a lot of potential.
We have lost one of our own as a doctors’ fraternity to #Covid_19. A young doctor with so much to offer.
