Breaking: Kano Records Fresh COVID-19 Case

Kano State has confirmed its first record of death from the coronavirus infection only four days after it recorded its index case.

The death was announced by the state ministry of health in a tweet late on Wednesday night posted at about 11:55pm.

Naija News reports that from recording its first case on Saturday, 11th April, Kano has already confirmed 21 cases and one death from the coronavirus infection as of Wednesday, 15th April, 2020.

The details of the person who died of the infection in Kano State was however not disclosed.

The state ministry of health, however, noted that efforts are ongoing to trace all possible contacts of the confirmed cases.

“Wednesday, 15th April 2020. As at 11:55 pm, 1 death of #COVID19 has been recorded in Kano State,” the government said in a tweet.

After Saturday’s index case, three other persons were confirmed to have tested positive for COVID-19 in Kano State, and by 10:35 am on April 15, 2020, the state ministry of health recorded five new additional cases, bringing the state’s total to nine.

However, the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) in an update at 11:23 pm on April 15, confirmed 12 new cases in the state, raising the total to 21.

Meanwhile, as part of efforts to contain the spread of the virus, Naija News reports the State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, has already ordered a one-week “complete lockdown” of the state, which will take off on Thursday.
