    One dies, 60 infected as another ailment hits Kano

    A mysterious ailment has hit residents of Gwangwan village in the Rogo Local Government Area of Kano State as victims vomit and urinate blood.

    Gwangwan village is about 136 kilometres from Kano City.

    A source, who spoke under condition of anonymity, said six places within the village were affected as no fewer than 60 persons have so far contracted the disease since the outbreak.

    He said areas hit by the outbreak of the disease include Gwangwan Yamma, Unguwar Tsarmai, Gangare, Unguwar Kofar Fada, Unguwar Rijiyar Dadi and Gwangwan Gabas.

    According to him, no fewer than 35 people were taken to Rogo General Hospital within a day of the outbreak.

    “As I am talking to you now, no fewer than 35 persons were hospitalised at the Rogo General Hospital within one day of the outbreak. So far, only one person died as a result of the outbreak,” the source added.

    According to him, some of the affected persons could not even stand on their feet as a result of the severity of the disease.

    Officials of the Rogo Hospital, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said they were not aware of any disease outbreak.

    Similarly, officials at the Ministry of Health said the ministry received a report of the outbreak but only four persons contracted the disease and have since been treated and discharged from the health facility in Rogo.

    Meanwhile, the National Agency for Food and Drugs Administration and Control has explained that the strange disease reported in Kano State was caused by food poisoning through a flavoured drink.

    NAFDAC’S Director-General, Prof. Mojisola Adeyeye, who made the disclosure to newsmen, described the incident as very serious, adding that investigations were still in progress.

    However, Adeyeye pointed out that although chances of a re-occurrence were minimal, NAFDAC had yet to establish whether it was a drink approved by the agency or an imported drink.
