Panic in Kano state as three people who tested positive for Coronavirus have reportedly fled from their known addresses.

WITHIN NIGERIA had earlier reported that the Kano State Government has confirmed 74 new cases of coronavirus in the state.

This disclosure was made by the Kano State coordinator of technical response team on Covid-19 identified as Tijjani Hussaini.

Tijani Hussaini disclosed that his team is working with security agencies to trace the patients who fled their places of residence and switched off their phones.

Hussaini further disclosed that the patients will be moved to the designated isolation centre when apprehended.

"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."

According to the Kano official, 73 persons are currently receiving treatment at the state's isolation centres.
