Medical doctors at Mulago Hospital have Friday confirmed that Nexus Bar and Lounge proprietor Ivan Kakooza succumbed to Covid19.
Kakooza breathed his last on Thursday night having been admitted at Mulago Hospital for a fortnight.
According to the medical personnel whose names remain anonymous, the deceased had shown signs of improvement after four weeks of treatment but became worse on Thursday.
“The Covid19 patient (Ivan Kakooza) was in the High Deficiency Unit (HDU) for a long time,” the medical officer is quoted by local publisher ChimpReports as having said.
“His condition suddenly changed yesterday night (Thursday) and he later passed on.”
He tested positive for Covid19 two weeks ago after feeling unwell. He was taken top Mulago with high difficulty in breathing.
While in the High Deficiency Unit, Kakooza received supplemental oxygen which had helped make his situation look better but an escalation on Thursday unfortunately took his life.
Celebrities, businessmen and partiers around Kampala have mourned Kakooza’s death saying it was unfortunate and very hurtful.
Details of his burial remain scanty.
