Suspected Coronavirus: 155 Persons Die In Yobe Within 6 Days

No less than 155 persons have died in Gashua and Potiskum areas of Yobe State over the last six days after exhibiting symptoms related with Coronavirus, SaharaReporters can confirm.

The deaths, which have caused panic among residents of the state, is similar to the situation experienced in Kano recently where people in large numbers died consistently for several days to what had now been confirmed by the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 to be the virus.

Between April 30 and May 5, 98 people died in Potiskum, a source told SaharaReporters on Wednesday.

“Cemeteries are now the busiest places in these towns.

“In Gashua town, at least 57 have died. Those dying are mostly elders, yet the state Committee on COVID-19 is sleeping in Damaturu as if nothing is happening,” another source familiar with the situation, said.

SaharaReporters also gathered that instead of addressing the challenges his state was facing, Governor Mai Mala Buni has been away in Abuja where he spends more than 80 per cent of his time since being elected into office.
