According to local media on the 28th, many Kenyans are worried about contracting Coronavirus, mainly women with breast cancer, so they try to avoid going to the hospital for medical services.
According to the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) of Kenya, cancer has become the country’s third leading cause of death. Breast cancer is the most common cancer, mainly affecting women between 40 and 55 years old.
NCBI researchers said that due to the outbreak and limited sanitary conditions in Kenya, patients are afraid that going to the hospital will have an additional risk of contracting COVID-19. Because of this situation
Ken Health Chief Executive Secretary Dr. Mercy Mwangangi has called on all patients in the country to visit hospitals regularly, saying that the hospitals are safe after disinfection.
