Over 20 health workers have tested positive for the COVID-19 in Kano State.

According to the Chairman, Association of Resident Doctors at the Aminu Kanu Teaching Hospital, Abubakar Nagoma, 12 health workers at the hospital, including doctors, nurses and lab scientists tested positive for the COVID-19.

Nagoma confirmed this to Channels Television on Tuesday.

Also, at the National Orthopaedic Hospital, Dala, 15 workers were reported to have tested positive after treating a patient who had the virus.

The chairman of the hospital’s branch of Association of Resident Doctors (ARD), Aliyu Kabara, confirmed this to Channels TV.

Mr Kabara said the 15 infected health personnel include three consultant doctors, nine resident doctors and three nurses that treated asymptomatic COVID-19 patients, who came to the hospital for orthopaedic treatment. “We were the first hospital in Kano to record infected COVID-19 doctors. During the first screening, 15 persons out of 25 samples were found to be positive for COVID-19. “All the infected doctors are now in self-isolation in their respective homes, pending the availability of beds in state isolation centres because presently there is a shortage of beds space in state isolation centres,” he said.

Kabara, however, noted that more spaces will be available as more recovered patients get discharged.
