FCG reports that in Kaduna State, about 10 children between the ages of 3-13 were said to have died from yet-to-be-identified suspected respiratory tract infection which broke out in Kafanchan, Jama’a Local government area of the state.
The Chief Medical Director of Sir Patrick Ibrahim Yakowa Memorial Hospital in Kafanchan, Doctor Isaac Nathaniel confirmed the outbreak in Kafanchan.
FCG gathered that “the outbreak had already claimed the lives of the victims, which if care is not taken as a result of ignorance and negligence will claim more.”
“Furthermore, as the experts from Federal Capital Territory and Kaduna State are as well coming for intervention, Jema’a LG citizens are advised to disclose, expose and convey whosoever is suspecting with such signs and symptoms to the Primary Health Care, Traditional Institutions among other relevant authorities.”
