The Coordinator of the Presidential Task Force set up for Kano on Covid-19, Dr. Sani Gwarzo, has linked the recent rash of deaths in Kano to Covid-19.
Kano State Government initially denied that the disease was responsible.

According to Gwarzo: “With the preliminary report, most of the deaths recorded of recent and test carried out indicated that coronavirus is the cause.
“Hence, before the final report which would be ready in the next one week or few days, it is necessary for people of the state to wake up from their slumber that this is a serious issue at hand.”
The Kano State government had earlier denied the mysterious deaths being recorded within the state capital.
But residents of the city continue to live in fear as more burials take place daily.
Leader of the team, Dr Nasiru Sani Gwarzo, disclosed this in an interview with journalists in Kano during the official presentation and handing over of the mobile testing laboratory donated by Aliko Dangote Foundation to the state government.
He explained that the recent spike in deaths in the state was as a result of coronavirus.

Dr Gwarzo said after the verbal autopsy and test carried out, it had been established that COVID-19 is the cause of most of the deaths.
