Unknown number of patients have been locked in at Shalom community hospital Athi-river over covid 19 scare.
The closure of the hospital followed an earnest directive by the county government of Machakos County and Kenya medical practitioners and dentist union(Kmpdu) that the hospital be sealed off after a health worker and several patients tested positive for covid-19.
All patients who sort medical services at the facility this morning along those admitted at the facility, all workers were locked in awaiting directives on the next move.
According to governor Mutua official Twitter handle and Facebook page, the hospital will now serve as a quarantine facility.
Tens of people who had come to visit admitted patients remained stranded as security agencies and county officers maintained tight security at the gate.
Families who had come to pick bodies of their loved ones also remained stranded as they remained locked out.
Tearful families cry foul due to lack of directives and any communication of when they will pick bodies.
The family members say they had cleared with the hospital and did not receive any communication whatsoever.
