By Augustine Oduor | January 9th 2021

Thirty-six teachers have died of Covid-19 since the pandemic hit Kenya in March last year, Teachers Service Commission (TSC) has said.

TSC data shows that 209 teachers have recovered from the virus, 92 teachers are on home-based care and nine are hospitalised.

“All efforts are being made to ensure that all teachers under medical attention receive the best care so they get well and resume work,” said TSC Chief Executive Officer Nancy Macharia (pictured).

Of the 345 teachers affected by the virus, 159 were male and 186 females. Teachers above 58 years and those with pre-existing conditions will work from home.
