One person has reportedly died and no fewer than 30 hospitalised in Kano State due to a strange disease.

Those affected, drawn from six villages under Rogo Local Council, were reportedly rushed to Rogo Primary Health Centre after passing excessive blood urine and vomiting.

The Guardian gathered yesterday that the situation was getting worse, as local healers and patent medicine stores in the communities were overwhelmed.


Areas affected by the outbreak include Unguwan Rijiyan Dadi, Gwanwan Gabas, Gwangwan Yamma, Unguwar Tsarmai, Gangare and Unguwar Kofar Fada.

Muhammad Tukur, a resident of Gwanwan Gabas, confirmed that about 56 persons have contracted the ailment since the outbreak.

“We rushed no fewer than 30 people to the Rogo General Hospital. So far, one person has died as a result of the outbreak. Most of the victims complained of spending a lot money for treatment,” he stated.
