Kano discharges three COVID-19 patients, records five more deaths


Three persons who earlier tested positive for coronavirus (COVID-19) in Kano State have recovered from the disease. The State Ministry of Health disclosed this via its Twitter handle in an early-morning post on Thursday.

According to the tweet, the recovered patients have been discharged from the government’s facility where they received treatment. This brings the number of patients who have recovered from COVID-19 in Kano to six since the outbreak of the disease in the state.

However, five other patients lost the battle to COVID-19, raising the death toll in the state to 13. Kano reported 30 new cases of coronavirus on Wednesday, trailing Lagos which had 82 new infections.

While the government is gradually easing the lockdown, the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) said a total of 195 new cases of COVID-19 were reported across 12 states and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Abuja.
