He said more testing is required to fish out people infected with the virus.

According to him it was alarming that only 10,000 plus tests have been carried out, so far, in a country as large as Nigeria with a population of about 200 million.

Kano on Saturday reported many VIP deaths within 24 hours.

There are concerns in and out of Kano that the coronavirus pandemic may have been responsible for the deaths.
