Kano Runs Out Of COVID-19 Test Kits, As Testing Center Suspends Operations by lalasticlala(m): 7:02pm On Apr 22, 2020
The newly established testing centre for COVID-19 in Kano State has suspended its operation.

The Director of the Centre for Infectious Diseases Research, Amimu Kano Teaching Hospital (AKTH), Isah Abunakar who confirmed this to Channels Television on Wednesday said the centre had run out of test kits.

Abubakar added that the centre would remain closed until new test kits are supplied from Abuja, the nation’s capital.

He added that samples taken in Kano will be sent to Abuja for testing, pending the resumption of operation at the Kano testing centre.

During the temporary closure, the laboratory will be fumigated as part of routine bio-safety measures to endure the safety of staff and the environment.

AKTH testing centre for COVID-19 was established a few weeks ago by the Nigeria Center for Disease Control (NCDC) to contain the spread of the deadly virus in Kano State.

Kano that is on course to topping the Covid-19 cases table. Let's hope that by the time they resume testing we will not be seeing figures in hundreds

Kano's case shows that high population can be an advantage during elections but a big disadvantage during pandemics.

When it's Election Time, they will turn out in millions to vote and boast about their large population.

Now it's time to test, they turn out in millions and ran out of testing kit..lol

Their politicians have been taking advantage of their large population for votes.
Now let's see how they will handle large population that needs their help and service.

The governor of Kano expended all his energy on the brutal fight with Sanusi Lamido, when Coro landed in Kano he is already exhausted and can't kill himself.
Sanwo-olu should be borrowed to Kano to help since he is the most experienced Governor on Coronic matters

I'm guessing CoronaVirus will also suspend it's spread, until the State gets new test kits.
