Meet Kenyan Native Among Medics On The Frontline Fighting COVID-19 In Italy


A Kenyan native who is also a French citizen; Aron Ndubi is among the celebrated medics who are in the frontline in Italy to help in the fight against coronavirus pandemic.

Ndubi was listed among other medical workers in an appreciation post by football club AS Roma which has promised to honor the healthcare workers during a match in front of fans once football resumes.

In regard to his service, Ndubi told AS Roma that the nation has done so much good for him and he sees this as a time to return the favor.

According to the football club, they initiated a series dubbed ‘HEROES’ which is aimed at celebrating the real heroes- healthcare workers; amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

This campaign was launched after Italy reported that an 18th doctor had died of COVID-19. On Friday, Italy announced the death of 51 doctors who had tested positive of coronavirus.

AS Roma also mentioned that Ndubi among other health workers on the HEROS list be celebrated during the special match and up to five thousand free tickets will be issued to medical workers who will attend the game as special guests.

Ever since the coronavirus outbreak struck some parts of the globe, healthcare workers have ensured that the patients get the care they need despite the overwhelming numbers in the health facilities.

Medical workers have also been on high demand with some countries forced to call back nurses and doctors on leave to offer their services.

The USA government, for instance, reached out to medical practitioners across the world seeking help after the numbers of  COVID-19 infections surpassed that of China.

Speaking during a press conference, health CS Mutahi Kagwe was forced to address the claims that Kenyan doctors will be among those who will travel to the USA.

Kagwe assured Kenyans that no doctors will be released unless it is a government to government agreement.
