Could This Be Reason For The 150 Mysterious Deaths In Kano?
Fear is rising in Kano after more than 150 people died within three days, prompting the town’s undertakers and grave diggers to voice deep concern.
The dead bodies buried in three cemeteries exclude those buried in hundreds of burial grounds throughout the eight areas of local government that make up the Kano metropolis, reports Daily Confidence.
Khalid Munir, a Kano resident who spoke with SaharaReporters on Tuesday, said he was deeply concerned about the situation because there were growing cases of Coronavirus in the area.
Kano State has 59 confirmed COVID-19 cases as at Tuesday – an exponential increase from when it first registered the index case 11 days ago.
“Who knows what is killing people? The development is causing people to panic and no one knows what is going on.
“The index Coronavirus case for example went to a lot of places even Friday prayers before he was confirmed positive, so a lot of people might be walking around with Coronavirus and dying from it and not even know,” he said.
One of the undertaker identified as Mohammed said over 30 people had been buried in the cemetery between Saturday and Sunday, as opposed to the average daily record of 10 burials before.
Mohammed revealed that most of the buried persons were aged cutting through both sexes within the time.
