Kano silent killer not COVID-19 rather complication from 4 other symptoms
The Kano government has acknowledged and decried the rising death rates in the state capital but declared that none was caused by the dreaded Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
Malam Muhammad Garba, the Commissioner of Information, gave the clarifications in a statement in Kano.
“The state government acknowledges recent deaths in Kano, but it is on top of the situation. We have begun an investigation to unravel the remote causes of the deaths.
“The investigation into the cause of the deaths is still ongoing, but a preliminary from the state’s Ministry of Health indicates that the deaths are not connected to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Reports from the ministry have shown that most of the deaths were caused by complications arising from hypertension, diabetes, meningitis and acute malaria.
“Gov. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje is anxiously waiting for the final report so as to take necessary action.
“The state government is concerned about what is happening. The ministry of health is already handling the situation. When they are through with the medical investigation, further actions will be taken.
“The mystery, or whatever it is, will soon be unravelled,” he said.
Garba added that Ganduje had demonstrated the zeal and political will to curb the spread of COVID-19 in the state.
“The Ganduje administration has been commended from within and outside the state over the proactive measures it took towards curbing the COVID-19 pandemic.
“This explains why Kano, in spite of being the most populous state, did not record a case of the pandemic until lately.
“Though we agree that the situation at hand is very serious, we are not resting on our oars in taking appropriate measures to ensure that people of Kano State protect themselves from the novel COVID-19 pandemic,” he stated.
