A man suspected of having Coronavirus was beaten to death with stones by a mob of youths in Kenya on Wednesday. As The Daily Mail reports:
A suspected coronavirus sufferer in Kenya was beaten by a group of youths armed with stones and later died in hospital.
The man, named locally as George Kotini Hezron, was going home after visiting a bar in the village of Msambweni in Kwale County when he was attacked yesterday.
Residents suspected him of having the virus and decided to set upon him as he walked home at around 9pm, according to local media.
The vigilante mob argued with Hezron and accused him of having the deadly disease and threw stones at him before fleeing.
The local police commissioner confirmed that it was uncertain whether the man actually had the virus and warned the public against making false accusations.
