Three persons have been confirmed dead following the outbreak of a strange disease suspected to be caused by food poisoning in the Kano metropolis. The outbreak, which occurred last Thursday, was said to have been caused by contaminated water and local drink.

The Director, Disease Control, Kano State Ministry of Health, Dr Bashir Lawan, confirmed the number of deaths in a telephone interview with The PUNCH on Tuesday.

The official said the health ministry officials are currently in a meeting with the commissioner on the issue.

“I’m currently with the commissioner of Health, so, call me later so that I can give you an update and details on the issue,” the director said.

However, a reliable source in the ministry told our correspondent on the condition of anonymity that no fewer than 200 affected persons are currently receiving medical attention at various health facilities in the state.

“The ministry has designated about eight facilities for the treatment of the infected persons following the rising number of cases,” the source said.

While giving an update, the State Commissioner of Health, Dr Aminu Ibrahim Tsanyawa, confirmed that no fewer than 284 were hospitalized following the outbreak of the strange disease, which broke out five days ago in the Kano metropolis.
