Panic rocked Mombasa Road in Nairobi when a matatu passenger died in his seat yesterday.
The 14-seater matatu was headed to the city centre when passengers realised that one of them was not conscious.
He had been asked to give way to a woman who wanted to alight.
The incident, near Belle Vue caused panic, with passengers and crew saying the man may have died from coronavirus-related complications.
Immediately the matatu came to a halt, passengers jumped out as the driver and conductor made calls to Ministry of Health officials.
A video taken by an onlooker and shared online showed health workers in protective gear fumigating the matatu with the body man’s still inside.
Another showed health workers and the driver removing the body from the vehicle.
