An aide to the President of the Democratic Republic of Congo has become the third person to die of coronavirus in that country.

Jean-Joseph Mukendi wa Mulumba who was a human rights lawyer died from complications triggered by the Coronavirus.

Mr Mulumba was a key figure in DR Congo opposition politics and helped in the fight for human rights.
