Isolation Center In Viral Video Is Being Renovated, Says Governor Ganduje

Franca Joseph (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – The Kano State Government has strongly carpeted a viral video currently trending on the social media which suggested that the state had no functional isolation centers.

In its response to the controversial video, the state government, via a signed statement by the Commissioner for Information, Malam Muhammad Garba, pointed out that there was no modicum of truth in the said video, which he termed an attempt by mischief makers to sabotage the contributions of the Coalition Against COVID (CACOVID) to the fight against COVID-19 in the state, assuring the public the government was staying committed to serving them.

Garba pointed out that the Sani Abacha Isolation Center, Kofar Mata, which was shown in the controversial video clip, and which was originally designed as a 500 bed facility, was being redesigned by CACOVID in line with the set standards and recommendations of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 (PTF) and the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC).

According to the commissioner,  218 out of the 500 beds originally meant for the Sani Abacha Isolation centre would now be deployed to the renovated Abubakar Imam Urology, Daula Isolation Centre and Karfi Sports Institute, adding that work on the Sani Abacha Isolation Centre would soon be completed for commissioning.
