“I have been feeling unwell for the last three weeks but at long last I was found with Covid-19”, said the veteran journalist.

His oxygen level is above 95 per cent and he has left intensive care unit where he was taken to upon arrival from Mwingi. “His health condition is now stable”, said the source who requested not to be named.

Mr Ilava has worked with Royal Media Service for more than 10 years. He is based at Mwingi town, Kitui County. He is a video journalist.

While missing reunion with his family and friends, Ilava ends the interview thus “God bless you all my good people of Kitui.”

Friends were advised to stop calling him while at the hospital earlier today since he was struggling to speak. Instead, they were told to visit him.

While recounting their time with him after the visit, they said he was responding well to treatment.

“I have talked to him two minutes ago and he tells me he is improving tremendously. He shall conquer”, said Mutua Wa Kanyange, a colleague to Ilava.

Due to the improvement in oxygen supply in the hospitals, Ilava’s life was saved as sources said that his oxygen level had hit 50 per cent at hospitalization. But he was able to improve tremendously since he was getting the right supplements.

Kitui County Government lacks capacity to manage Covid-19 as shown by this reporter's story. Residents and visitors need high quality and affordable medical treatment.
