Kenyan weddings, births and deaths in the age of Covid-19

 

A family mourns after a 13-year-old boy was shot dead by police during a curfew
  In our series of letters from African journalists, Joseph Warungu looks at how coronavirus has changed the lives of Kenyans, from birth to death.To get more news about Covid forex, you can visit wikifx news official website.
  Sheila Atieno* is on standby to help a young woman who is 32 weeks pregnant deliver her baby. Dr Atieno has done this many times before. But this birth, when it happens, will be unusual.
  The expectant woman was brought into a special ward at a public hospital in the capital, Nairobi, after testing positive for coronavirus.
  Dr Atieno, a consultant obstetrician gynaecologist, is part of a small team of doctors who have been identified to attend to expectant women who display symptoms of the virus.

  Dr Atieno's world has changed drastically. She is a mother of two children under the age of two years.
  "It's been very difficult to cope with the fact that I will be specifically attending to expectant mothers who are infected with the virus," she tells me.
  I'm about to perform a caesarean section, which usually involves handling a lot of body fluids. Although I'll carry out the operation while dressed in a protective suit, it makes you quite hot and uncomfortable.
  And when I get home, the children will want to rush into my arms. But I can't touch them until I have changed, showered and sanitised myself.
  "It's tough mentally and emotionally. But I have no choice - it's my job to usher in new life, with or without the pandemic," Dr Atieno says.

  Francis and Veronica Gitonga spent a sixth of what they had budgeted for on their wedding
  Francis and Veronica Gitonga are a young couple on honeymoon at their rural home in Nyahururu, which is about 200km (125 miles) from Nairobi.
  They had planned their wedding for 5 April. They invited 500 guests to witness the big moment when they would each say: "I do!"
  But when they did, only six people were allowed inside the church - the bride, the groom, their best couple and two presiding pastors. No parents, no family, no village mates.
  Social distancing rules and travel restrictions brought about by Covid-19 distanced hundreds of people from their wedding. The couple held their wedding reception at home with only 12 people present.
  They had the option of postponing their wedding until life returns to normal. But they chose not to.
