Three coronavirus patients in Kano State have reportedly disappeared after they tested positive.
Kano State coordinator of technical response team on COVID-19, Tijjani Hussaini told the Premium Times that his team is working with security agencies to trace the patients who fled their places of residence and switched off their phones.
When apprehended, the patients will be moved to the designated isolation centre. Hussaini said;
“Out of 77 confirmed cases tested positive in Kano, we are yet to trace three persons, because they have changed (their) place(s) of residence and switched off their phones. But we have sought the assistance of security personnel to trace them and take appropriate action.”
The Kano official also disclosed that 73 persons are currently receiving treatment at the state’s isolation centres.
