640 people died in Kano in one week, not two days —Kano Govt

The Deputy Coordinator of Kano State COVID-19 Response Team, Dr. Sabitu Shuaibu, Saturday dismissed reports that the state recorded 640 deaths in two days.

Kano, the commercial capital of Northern Nigeria, has reportedly been rocked by mysterious deaths in the last few days.

Shuaibu, who appeared on Channels TV, said the figure was recorded in the last one week and not in two days as insinuated by some persons on social media.

He said: “Let’s say about an average of 100 deaths daily from Kano metropolis, but don’t forget that around 50 percent of the Kano population are within the metropolis. We can agree that there are deaths going on, but we also understand that there are deaths going on from other causes.

“We are saying that we are putting up a system to investigate if there is a link between COVID-19 and the deaths.
