The mysterious deaths in Kano state has been confirmed to be as a result of COVID-19.

This was confirmed by Dr Nasiru Sani Gwarzo, leader of the Presidential Task Force Committee on COVID-19.

Gwarzo, while speaking on Sunday, said, test carried out following the recent deaths in Kano, established that COVID-19 was the cause.

He said, “Let me inform us that most of the deaths recorded of recent and test carried out showed that Coronavirus was the cause.

“So, before the final report which would be ready in the next one week or few days, it is necessary for people of Kano to wake up from their slumber that this is a serious issue.

“It is not a new thing, countries like America, China, Italy, Spain, England, France and others experienced similar mysterious deaths.”

Kano has recorded many deaths in recent time, with many questioning the cause of death and blaming the state government and indigenes of not doing enough to find out the leading cause of death in the state.

However, due to increasing concerns, President Muhammadu Buhari during the week ordered the Gwarzo-led Presidential Task Force to unravel the cause of deaths in Kano.
