Kano has opened a “females only” isolation centre for women suspected for coronavirus, in response to agitations that have emerged in existing centres.
Governor Abdullahi Ganduje inspected the Daula Females Isolation Centre, situated in Nasarawa Local Government Area on Thursday, and said everything needed to make the centre work was in place.
“We don’t want to hear any complaints from any patient here please. You need to understand the psychology of your patients, provide them with the necessary items they may need,” said the Governor.
The governor also acknowledged that, there were complaints at some of the isolation centres, noting that the state government had adopted strategies that will find lasting solutions to the complaints.
“Patients should be aware about the procedures. That if they are tested negative for the first time, then they should know that there is hope. And when they are tested negative for the second time, then they are due for discharge,” he said.
Governor Ganduje explained that, when there was no such explanation, patients would not know when next a sample would be taken and when next the result of the samples would be announced to them, and that could spark a lot of agitations.
Kano famously banned different sexes boarding the same tricycle last December, then lifted the ban by January.
