Professor Yussuf however recommended solutions he feels will help Kano handle the outbreak.

He recommended strong allocation of Federal Resources in fighting this Virus to be placed in Kano, making Kano the major venter of operations on Covid-19 for the Presidential Task Force.

Allocation of Medical Equipment and Manpower needed to fight the outbreak with proper record keeping and contact tracing in Kano.

Finally, an awareness campaign with social and religious leaders in Kano about the Virus.

Kano state has only one test centre which had to be suspended because it lacked the testing capabilities, which has led to NCDC reporting smaller than expected number of cases in Kano.

    Shebi, the governor said that the dead cases are not related to covid 19. How do we come in or render help? You are calling for help as if we are wicked or less concern, when the owner of the pains had declared that he is not feeling pain. Do you want us to go and feel the pains for him, or more than him?
