The Kano State Governor, Dr. Ganduje has disclosed why the state experienced mysterious deaths in the past weeks.
Ganduje, who spoke through his Media Aides, Salisu Yakasai explained that preliminary investigations showed that death casualties in Kano were resulting from malaria and cerebrospinal Meningitis.
Speaking during an interview on a German-based radio, DW Hausa, on Friday, the governor said most of the deceased presented underlying medical conditions such as high blood pressure and diabetes among others.
Ganduje said that the growing death casualties were owing to the “inadequate medical attention from the government-owned and private health facilities in the state amidst fear of COVID-19 infection.
“These are categories of people that need special attention which they are no longer having from the health personnel because of fear of Coronavirus.”
Ganduje stated that the non-functionality of private hospitals due to Coronavirus outbreak could have added to the high rate of fatalities in the state.
