Has Kano flattened the curve of COVID-19?

From recording hundreds of COVID-19-related deaths within five weeks, Kano State, with its about 20 million population, posted a total of eleven new cases from June 21-27, according to the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC).

The progressive drop in the number of confirmed cases in the state despite additional testing centres has continued to raise questions on whether the state has successfully flattened the curve of the virus, especially after the state government lifted the ban on viewing centres.

While the federal government said, at least, 587 COVID-19-related deaths were recorded within five weeks in the state, the state government insisted that only 255 COVID-19-related deaths were recorded within the period.

And in spite of the warning by the federal government about the imminent danger ahead in the current war against coronavirus in the country, the recent actions of the state government, particularly with regards to enforcement of restrictions have continued to raise questions about the situation at hand.
