Kano State is coming close to Lagos in terms of total numbers of new cases recorded daily. The late adherence to lockdown measures by northern states is the rationale behind their recent rapid increase in total number of confirmed positive cases.
The Kano State Government has confirmed 74 new cases of coronavirus in the state.
Governor Umar Ganduje made this known on Saturday. Speaking at a press briefing,, Ganduje said out of 489 samples, 74 tested positive.
We’ve taken samples of 489 people, out of these number 74 were confirmed positive for the virus,” Daily Independent quoted him as saying.
