Fiona Juma had put up a post on Facebook, in which she desperately pleaded for oxygen.

“If this is my last post, then God, I want to say thank you to everyone who has been there for me ever since I contracted COVID-19. I have been to Mbagathi Hospital, where I have been trying to get oxygen for hours and days. Although, I can barely walk nor speak, they are telling me there’s no oxygen completely,” she said.

“I have seen people die right before my eyes; not one or two people. It’s now 3:51am as I write this…I am kindly requesting any doctors who happen to have oxygen to please help us…PLEASE!!!”

The news of he death were broken by Ndungu Nyoro. Nyoro narrated how Fiona’s health deteriorated rapidly.

“Someone sent a passionate appeal yesterday because her oxygen saturation levels were going down in an alarming rate. By evening she was an ICU candidate. Sadly the hospital didn’t have a way of getting her into ICU. There was no available space everywhere. Eventually she lost the battle. Heartbreaking. This Covid-19 is messing. Safiri salama rafiki,” Nyoro said.
