Sabitu Shuaibu Shanono, Deputy Coordinator Kano Rapid Response on COVID-19 on Wednesday made this disclosures, saying that it all occurred between December 2020 and January 2021 in Kano.
Briefing the stakeholders on the upsurge of pandemic in the state, Mr. Shanono revealed that the state had recorded 827 new cases so far.
The Health official in a power point presentation before the governor, five first class Emirs and others, stated that over 5,000 persons are on contact tracing as the cases rose to 2,636 in the state.
The Deputy Coordinator explained that metropolitan councils that included Nasarawa, Tarauni, and Kano Municipal are worst affected.
