The CS and her team had no proper protective gear and she was talking to surgeons who were attending to a patient.
The CS has made the clarification on her official Twitter account, saying that the criticism she has received from online users was justified.
“The criticism my team and I have received is justified. Medical theatres are sterile environments and although this is a simulation lab, we should have been dressed in proper attire,” Wafula tweeted.
She added that the simulation lab uses dummies, not patients.
