2nd coronavirus death of Malawi citizen in UK

Barely a day after losing a Malawian nurse  working for a care home in UK  after having symptoms of Covid-19, another Malawian citizen has  died after contracting coronavirus on British soil.

Nkhoma: Dies from Covid-19

The second victim is  identified as Best Nkhoma died at home in self-isolation .

His wife Meriah Lapani Nkhoma was “too devastated” to comment on the fatality.

The wife is in self-isolation with four kids.

This comes after death of  nurse Elsie Chafulumira Sazuze who  had no underlying health issues.

Her husband Kenneth Sazuze – a renowned Malawian DJ who is training to be a nurse, – confirmed the demise of his “beautiful angel.”

Sazuze said his wife of 24 years, who had trained and worked at New Cross Hospital in Wolverhampton, fell ill at home in Birmingham before being taken to Good Hope Hospital in Sutton Coldfield where she died on Tuesday.

Many tributes  continue to pour on Facebook for the breaved families.

A leading microbiologist Dr Paul Matewele, a senior lecturer in microbiology immunology at London Metropolitan University, died at Barnet Hospital,  originally from Zimbabwe  has also passed away after contracting coronavirus.

Matewele grew up in Pelandaba suburb in Bulawayo and moved to the UK at the age of 19 to further his studies.

The deceased’s sister, Mrs Gay Moyo, who is based in Harare, said family members in the country are devastated that they will not give Dr Matewele the send-off he deserves, as they will not attend his funeral.

Britain, which went into lockdown on March 23, is on a steep coronavirus trajectory as it battles the virus as it recorded its highest daily rise in the number of patients dying with coronavirus on Wednesday with 938 deaths recorded in UK hospitals in 24 hours.

The total number of UK deaths now stands at 7,097, according to the latest Department of Health figures.

Sad to hear of the deaths. The UK hospitals have a lot of spare capacity including ICU beds hence no one is refused hospital admission. Secondly, the UK is now starting to see flattening of the curve and not steeping.
RIP.

Infact he went to the hospital and was sent back saying he was too strong and didn’t require admission. His close relations spoke to him yesterday and was so confident that he was going to get wel. Rest in peace Best. May the good Lord comfort Meriah during this difficult time
