Why Kano Records High Daily Number of COVID-19 — Minister

Why Kano Records, High Daily Number, COVID-19
Nigeria's health minister, Osagie Ehanire

Nigeria’s minister of health, Dr Osagie Ehanire, on Friday, said the high number of new COVID-19 cases recorded daily in Kano State was due to “the fact that all labs in Kano are now functioning and clearing the sample backlog, with over 350 tests done daily.”

Ehanire said this at the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 daily press briefing in Abuja, hinting that the initial high epidemic situation in the state had stabilized due to the opening up of more treatment and isolation centres.

Meanwhile, the director-general of Nigeria Centre for Disease Control, Dr Chikwe Ihekweazu, has said that the use of face masks will provide additional layer of protection, warning that they are not to be reused or shared with others.
