There is nothing as heartbreaking as viral news that an individual is dead, when they are actually alive. Especially in this day and age of the Internet, where news spreads like bush fire.
Seasoned Kenyan journalist, Larry Madowo had last week informed Twitters fans that he was sickly and had to be rushed to the Emergency Room.
However, he clearly stated that it was not the fatal Coronavirus and that he shall live.
Unfortunately, a Twitter user divulged news that Larry was no more, having succumbed to Coronavirus.
The post by one _wangar, read:
News just came in that Larry madowa is dead.. Larry passed on one hour ago from Corona virus may his soul rest in peace.
A disgusted Larry shared the screenshot on his Twitter page, sadly commenting:
Reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated. I was in the ER last week!
Further stating that he had since been discharged and recovered.
There is absolutely nothing fun, in announcing the death of anyone whosoever, while they are actually alive.
