Homabay Principal Infects His Teacher with Coronavirus Before Dying

A school principal from Ober Boys High School has died from Covid 19 leaving behind one of his teachers positive for the novel Coronavirus. A 24-year-old teacher  tested positive for Covid-19 in Kabondo Kasipul after interacting with a school principal who died of the disease.

The 24 years old male teacher from Ober Boys High School has been placed under self-quarantined in his house in the school compound where he has been staying alone after schools were closed. This is after he tested positive for the virus on Sunday 7th May.

The samples from the teacher had been taken and were tested at the Kemri laboratory in Kisumu where the results came out positive.

The teacher is reported to have attended a meeting chaired by the principal, Maurice Muholo, on May 19.

Speaking to journalists, Homa Bay Health executive Richard Muga said Muholo had travelled from his house in Migori town and convened the meeting at the school.

The meeting was attended by four other officers including the deputy principal, two other teachers and the school bursar.

“They met and after that, the principal went back to his house in Migori. The principal started feeling unwell before he sought medication but his health deteriorated and later died,” Muga said.

The Health executive said the body of the principal was buried in his ancestral home in Gem, Siaya.

On June 3, the County Incident Management Committee (CIMC) with the assistance of security officers began contact tracing and identified the teacher.

“The CIMC put four from the meeting under home-based self-quarantine because each of them lived in independent quarters,” Muga said.

He said they had isolated the 24-year-old teacher at Malela Covid-19 treatment centre for medication. The health executive revealed that the CIMC team is tracing the teacher’s contacts.

“We are also decontaminating by spraying the school, houses, surfaces, gates and other premises and Ober Market” Muga said.

He said the county is continuing to enhance public awareness through community dialogue through mobilisation of community health volunteers and village elders.

The executive told residents to focus on measures to prevent the coronavirus.
