Katoka Hospital has seen it's first case of covid this week. Thankfully the lady concerned is responding to treatement and making a good recovery. However, it is an indication that covid is making it's way to some of the most remote areas of Congo, having previously been mainly concentrated in the cities and urban areas. Thankfully test kits are now readily available in the area which will enable cases to be quickly identified and treated. Mary is pleased to be back from her visit to the UK where she was able to get her two covid vaccines. She assisted in the birth of a very healthly baby boy earlier this week, both parents were delighted! The schools in the area didn't start as planned last week as the teachers were on strike due issues of pay. It is hoped this can be quickly resolved so pupils can start their studies again. Like many parts of the world school was disrupted during the last academic year due to covid.
