Doctor Doreen Adisa Lugaliki made news headlines after she succumbed to COVID-19 while on the frontline of duty.
The news of the loss was announced by Kenya medical practitioners board on their official Facebook page three days ago.
“We have lost a hard-working obstetrician/gynecologist, a mother, a friend and a colleague to the devastating effects of Covid-19. Our condolences to the family and friends of Dr. Doreen Lugaliki,” read the post.
The 38-year-old mother died of COVID-19 after being admitted to the Aga Khan University Hospital.
