Three persons who tested positive for Corona-virus in Kano state, have reportedly fled from their known addresses.
Tijjani Hussaini, Kano State coordinator of technical response team on COVID-19, 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 center. 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.”
73 persons are currently receiving treatment at the state’s isolation centers.
