Three COVID-19 Patients Die In Sokoto by Nemere2020: 11:05am On Apr 29, 2020
Sokoto Governor Aminu Waziri Tambuwal has confirmed the death of three COVID-19 patients in the state.

Tambuwal, who made the disclosure in a statewide broadcast, according to a statement by his Special Adviser Media and Publicity, Muhammad Bello, said the deceased had underlying sicknesses, including diabetes , asthma and high blood pressure respectively.

Tambuwal said: ” It is with heavy heart that I have to break this news of the results of tests carried out by the National Center for Diseases Control (NCDC) at the laboratory here in Usman Danfodio University Teaching Hospital (UDUTH), whereby 18 tests were carried out.

”Unfortunately, out of them nine turned out to be negative. Most of them, if not all, are persons that have had previous contacts with the two index cases that we have had initially.

“And, unfortunately, so far, out of the 54 tests carried out from Sokoto state, it means that we have 19 positive cases.

“Out of these, unfortunately again, we have recorded today 3 COVID-19 associated deaths. All of the 3 are patients having history of some other diseases-diabetes, asthma and high blood pressure.”

The Governor appealed to the communities to continue to cooperate and support security agencies keeping vigil at borders- interstate and Niger Republic with the sole aim of protecting residents.

RIP. I believe Covid19 is real,.. I want to see the video of the isolation center or the hospital where they admit Covid19 patience. Nigerians are very smart when it comes to corruption. Adding figures every 24 hours is not enough

Imagine...we have serious issues like COVIK-1-9 in the North and the police is busy arresting innocent people like Mubrak Bala. Kano city itself might be a ticking timebomb for the Coronavirus with peacefuls flouting lockdown left, right and centre to attend prayers.



*Please change your dp to the below picture on all social media accounts.Lets carry out a silent protest to save the life of this young man. Let us save the Constitution of Nigeria before it becomes islamized completely.

Covid-19 death rate is alarming up north...poor health facility..poor Nigerians
Re: Three COVID-19 Patients Die In Sokoto by Chapii: 11:59am On Apr 29, 2020
I watched Funmi Oke on Aljazeera (The Stream) yesterday. She interviewed a Doctor from Kano who confirmed that most private hospitals in Kano have closed down and up to 70% of Doctors in Gov't hospitals have absconded. Many are dying of regular illnesses because they cannot get adequate healthcare as a result of fear created by Covid-19.
The Nigerian society is on a delicate balance with over 50% of Nigerians barely surviving èespecially in the North. Anything that alters that balance such as lockdowns or excessive fear tips society over which results in increase death rates, which is what is happening in Kano.
Coronavirus is not as infectious in this part of the world as it is in the West so our leaders should be very careful with how they manage this situation. The response should not be worse than the disease. Learn from Oyo & Cross River States.

I'm really sorry for the people of Northern part of the country for what will befall them in the coming days and weeks, for they took Corvid-19 for granted
And their President worsen the situation by angering the heavens with his nepotism in sharing of the lockdown palliatives even when they didn't agree to lockdown with the rest of the country
I'm really sorry embarassed
