He, however, debunked media report attributing the prevailing mass deaths in Kano to COVID-19 pandemic.

According to him, he was misrepresented by the media on the cause of deaths in the state.

Earlier, the Coordinator of the Technical Response Team on COVID-19, Dr Tijjani Hussain, said that three COVID-19 patients would be discharged after testing negative twice to the pandemic.

“More shall soon be discharged by the grace of God. The process of discharging a patient requires two tests within a span of 48 hours in which the results are negative.

“Hence with the available test centres, more patients will soon be confirmed negative,”

Hussain said.

The coordinator said that initially it was the absence of the test centres that delayed their discharge.

”With the available test centres, we are now going to prioritize them in the testing”

He said.

Hussain further said that the team has 1,332 calls as at Monday while they have collected 332 samples.

He explained how the samples collected are despatched for test, saying “we have sent 182 to Abuja, 60 to Aminu Kano Teaching Hospital and 71 to BUK test centre.”
