Kenya: Doctors Go On Strike Over Delayed Salaries

Why Kenya has been unable to end a two-month long doctors' strike

Dozens of doctors in at least two of Kenya’s 47 counties have gone on strike on Friday over delayed salaries, inadequate personal protective equipment for handling COVID-19 patients, and lack of medical insurance.

Healthcare workers say they have not been given adequate PPEs, but the government has said it has distributed enough.

According to the latest information from the Kenyan Ministry of Health, at least 838 health workers have contracted COVID-19 and at least 16 have died.

Doctors say the bulk of the deceased is from the Nairobi county which is the epicentre of the disease.
