The rumors on Oyugi Ogango principal Martha Ouma succumbing to Covid 19 might have been fueled by current five teachers in Migori undergoing Covid 19 care.

Migori county Kuppet secretary general Orwa Jasolo said rumours about Covid 19 might have been caused by five teachers who are currently at Covid 19 isolation and treatment center in Nyatike sub-county.

He said the death has shocked them and raised “concerns as education stakeholders over Covid 19, but rumours on the deaths are unfounded and not confirmed.”

n Tuesday morning died at a Kisumu hospital while undergoing treatment with officials dispelling rumours she might have succumbed to Covid 19.

In the morning candidates at the school in Rongo sub-county and villagers mourned the institution head when the news broke.

Addressing the press, Migori county education officer Elizabeth Otieno said the teacher passed on at Nightingale Hospital in Kisumu.

Otieno said it was sad that after her death, social media posts attributed the death to Covid 19 which she said was false and alarming.

“She was unwell for long and the death has shocked us, we are waiting for further deaths and results from the ministry of health on what might have caused her death. We discourage alarm over the death with un-confirmed reports,” she said.

Migori county health executive Iscar Oluoch said the cause of death is not yet established in a text to the press.
