Three persons who tested positive for COVID-19 in Kano state have fled their known addresses and switched off their phones to avoid being tracked by the COVID-19 response team in the state.
Tijjani Hussaini, the Kano state coordinator of the technical response team on COVID-19 told Premium Times on Monday, April 27, that his team has sought the assistance of security personnel to trace the runaway patients.
The Kano COVID-19 response team is also working with traditional ward heads round the clock to trace the patients
“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,” he said.
Hussaini stated that his team is also working with traditional ward heads round the clock to trace the patients.
