Kano COVID19 Centre Closed Indefinitely For Fumigation After Staff Test Positive by olasco2035: 7:39pm On Apr 25, 2020
The head of COVID-19 testing centre in Kano, Nasiru Magaji, on Saturday said there is no definite date for resuming the test in Kano.

He told PREMIUM TIMES that although the laboratory was opened on Friday, they are yet to commence treating samples.

“We have opened the lab since yesterday (Friday), but you can’t run samples just like that when you open the lab. You have to do a lot of things. So, we are doing those things up (till) now,” he said.

Commenting on when they would resume testing, Mr Magaji said, “We don’t know until we finish everything. In a lab like that, you have to do all the safety procedures before you start exposing yourself.

PREMIUM TIMES, on Wednesday, reported how a member of Kano Task Force on COVID-19, Isa Abubakar, said the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control‘s COVID-19 testing centre in Kano suspended its operation due to shortage of testing kits.

On Thursday, Health Minister Osagie Ehanire said the centre was temporarily closed because some staff of the laboratory were reportedly infected with COVID-19. He also added that the centre ran short of some testing reagents.

But Mr Magaji said the laboratory was closed for routine fumigation which would last 48 hours.

For four consecutive days, Kano has not featured in NCDC’s daily update on COVID-19.

Nigeria’s cases rose to 1,095 with Kano recording 73 as of Friday night, according to the NCDC.

The COVID-19 testing centre, domiciled at Malam Aminu Kano Teaching Hospital, hosts many northern states’ suspected cases.

Experts say testing capacity is a major step in fighting the spread of coronavirus.

The challenge faced in Kano typifies the challenge of testing Nigeria has faced since the first case of the disease was detected in the country in February. About 10,000 people have been tested so far, across the country, less than a quarter of the number tested in smaller African countries like Ghana and South Africa.

So until the NCDC comes to ur aid or the FG gives u N15 billion, as a governor of an economically viable state you can't mobilize funds as a state to increase and equip ur testing facilities, as well as upgrade ur testing capacity? but when it comes to elections, you won't sleep until u unleash violence and deliver millions of rigged votes just to be on the good pages of ur political benefactors and loot the treasury...man's inhumanity to man is typified in most Nigerian politicians. You guys can watch yourselves get destroyed by the virus, since you don't have a date to resume testing...they are talking as though they are being begged to do the needful...bunch of fools in government.

I guess the #10,000 required for each test of covid-19 seems to be a big deal for the looters, until every insect starts dropping dead in Kano, that is when corona would be feared. Useless government of the people, by the looters and for the looters.

Kano still unable to test for some time now with the increasing number of cases really says something about the system, the testing capacity needs to be ramped up or Nigeria will be updating hourly scores of the dead.

There are many living corpse amongst us.

cool



Anambra should take note

Obiano and Ganduje's style are similar, first ask FG for 10billion and 15 billion respectively when buhari shuns them and proves sturborn, they use religion to make people come out and infect themselves, they reduce testing for like two weeks and boom they start having cases and money start rolling in

even Seyi Makinde that brought Covid 19 into Oyo State with his PDP rally, and Davido concert has started cashing out, over 400 million from private donor, yet common rice or sanitizers not even face mask oga no donate to anyone

Re: Kano COVID19 Centre Closed Indefinitely For Fumigation After Staff Test Positive by kabawa(m): 9:00pm On Apr 25, 2020
A father before he died said to his son: “this is a watch your grandfather gave and this is more than 200 years old, but before I give it to you go to the watch shop on the first street, and tell him I want to sell it, and see how much it is”.
He went and then came back to his father, and said, "The watchmaker wanted to pay 5 dollars because it's old”.
Then he said to him: “Now go to the coffee shop”.
He went and then came back, and said: “He wanted to pay $5 father”. “Now go to the museum and show that watch”.
He went then came back, and said to his father “THEY OFFERED ME A MILLION DOLLARS FOR THIS PIECE!!!”.
The father said: “I wanted to let you know that the right place will recognize your value. Don't put yourself in the wrong place and get angry if you're not appreciated according to your worth. He who knows your value is he who appreciates you. Don't stay in a place that doesn't suit you".

Know your worth.

It a pity that Sanusi who can tell them
The bitter truth in Kano has been silenced.

Let the governor keep denying the sudden increasing death in Kano. It will soon visit his own.

It's a shame how the governor is playing politics with his people.

Religion and politics.

I hope Kano will not be epicentre, they have lots of work to do in term of sensitisation and awareness programs through proper orientation.
