KANO COVID CENTRE SHUT FOR LACK OF TEST KITS
Uploaded by admin on April 22, 2020
The newly established testing centre for COVID-19 in Kano State has suspended operations.
This is because the Centre has ran out of test kits.
The Director of the Centre for Infectious Diseases Research, Amimu Kano Teaching Hospital, Dr Isah Abubakar confirmed the development.
Dr. Abubakar said that samples collected in Kano would be sent to Abuja for testing, pending the resumption of operation at the Kano testing centre.
Dr. Abubakar said that during the period of temporary closure, the laboratory would be fumigated as part of routine bio-safety measures.
The testing centre was established a few weeks ago by the Nigeria Center for Disease Control to contain the spread of the deadly virus in Kano State.
