Key lessons drawn from the coronavirus pandemic and 2020, in general, is that everyone needs to invest in their health no matter what social class you are in.
As cases of Covid-19 keep on rising, the health care system is getting overwhelmed every day and now counties outside Nairobi City are likely to start feeling the heat.
The government has put up measures to prevent further spread of the pandemic which now thrives at community transmission among them being instituting curfew hours between 9 PM to 4AM.
During this period a lot can happen, let’s take for example pregnant mothers who have been at the center of this pandemic for fearing to go to the hospital due to different reasons.
Sadly, a number have been recorded to have given birth from their homes since they were unable to move about at night or even find a means to get them to the nearest health facility.
Worse of a few cases have been reported of mothers who died in the process of giving birth in their homes.
Other diseases are also not waiting and can occur or worsen at any point of a day or night.
As a result you will need the best and easiest means to get you to a health facility before things worsen up.
That is why you need a caring partner like the emergency medical evacuation program to take care of your needs.
