REVIEW OF THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC: AN INDEPENDENT APPRAISAL AND ANALYSIS ON THE KANO SITUATION By Dr Murtala Isa Umar BPharm, MBA, MHE, FPCPharm, PharmD

Kano has been recording spikes of the Covid-19 cases since it’s reported index case about 3 weeks ago with attendant recorded ‘strange deaths’. This has put Kano in the spotlight as one of the emerging global epicenters of the disease. Covid-19 has been observed to affect more adversely the elderly population, immunocompromised/those on immunosuppressive drugs and those with underlying medical conditions such as cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, respiratory disorders and cancers worldwide.

Kano is a melting pot of many sorts for the North, especially Northwest, and as such findings in Kano could be replicated in the surrounding states and probably the entire North.

Claims of denial of the disease in the North is widespread but I doubt if it’s related to ignorance. This disease is unprecedented.
