The Federal Government has said a total of 979 people died as a result of strange illnesses in Kano State over a five-week period, NEWS DIRECT reports.

Minister of Health, Osagie Ehanire, stated this on Monday in Abuja during a briefing by the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19.

He said an investigation carried out by the special team sent to the state revealed that 50 to 60 per cent of the deaths were associated with coronavirus.

Ehanire explained that most of the fatalities were over 65 years old and more than half of the deaths occurred at home.

The minister said, “With the observation and recommendations of the three-week assignment, the committee developed strategic incident management and coordination plan to strengthen the capacity of the health workers and improve community engagement in line with our response plan.

“The healthcare workers in Kano and the northern part of our country had become very jittery at the advent of coronavirus disease and had stopped or slowed down attending to other patients which led to complications in the health delivery.

“Many of them have become infected. Over 150 health workers were infected at the time of the arrival of the team.
