We Have A New Testing Centre For Coronavirus – NCDC


The Nigeria Center for Disease Control, NCDC, has established a Coronavirus testing center in Kano.

The State Deputy Governor, Nasiru Gawuna, who confirmed this said, “from now, all samples of suspected cases of COVID-19 will not be taken to Abuja for testing but treated in Kano.”

Gawuna, who is also the Chairman of the State Task Force Committee on COVID-19, disclosed this when he paid an inspection visit to the COVID-19 test centre set up by the NCDC at the Aminu Kano Teaching Hospital.

“We are on a fact finding mission; from what we have seen in the laboratory, installation of equipment is complete and test running has been made,” he explained.

He expressed the appreciation of Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje’s administration to the Federal Government for setting up the COVID-19 test centre in Kano, saying other neighbouring States can also bring their samples for testing in the centre.
