The Association of Media Women in Kenya (AMWIK) released a statement on Monday calling for recognition of journalists as some of worst-hit group of workers who need special consideration for the COVID-19 vaccine as they are also on the frontline.
We plead with the government to equally look into easing the cost of treating for Covid 19 by allowing for partial treatment of the same by the National Health Insurance Fund (NHIF) to ease the pressure on families,” said Dr Dorothy Njoroge, AMWIK Chairperson. We are sending our condolences to all media houses and the families .Rest in peace heroes.
