In an update by the Kenya Medical Practitioners Pharmacists and Dentists Union (KMPDU), Dr. Andrew Njuguna died after a month-long battle with the Coronavirus disease.

KMPDU described Dr. Njuguna as a brilliant dentist, and a vibrant member of the Kenya Dental Association.

Dr. Njuguna's death comes barely a day after KMPDU called off a strike by doctors after reaching an agreement with the Ministry of Health.

Health workers in Kenya had downed their tools demanding better treatment by government during the covid-19 pandemic.

They accused government of not providing protective equipment for them during the pandemic, among other things.
