The young doctor who couldn't afford Covid treatment

Stephen Mogusu was 28 years old when he died of Covid.

He had been working as a doctor in a Kenyan Covid ward, but when he died, his family said he hadn't been paid in five months.

They say he hadn't been provided proper PPE or insurance, and couldn't afford the treatment he was providing to others.

Kenya's health minister says problems with slow pay and PPE are being addressed.
