The attention of Kano State Ministry of Health has been
drawn to fake news being circulated on the social media on purported outbreak
of Corona Virus disease in Kano.
The fake news, carried on fake logos of CNN and BBC Hausa
service, alleged that two students of Bayero University, Kano have been
confirmed positive of the Corona Virus disease (Covid-19).
The news is indeed untrue, false and nothing but a white lie
by mischief makers intended to cause panic in the state.
To make the record straight, there was never at any point in
time since the recorded outbreak of the disease in the country when Kano State
had any confirmed case of Covid-19,
The Commissioner of Health, Dr. Aminu Ibrahim Tsanyawa,
therefore urged all concerned organizations, groups, individuals and the
general public to disregard the news as just a lie, fake and unfounded rumour
being circulated with an intent to cause panic among the general public.
The commissioner however advised people to take
precautionary measures against the disease including regular hand washing
social distancing and report any suspected case to the nearest health facility.
