Diphtheria: Kano Cautions People Against Needless Gatherings



The Kano State government has called on people to shun unnecessary gatherings in order to safeguard themselves and others from the bondage of the diphtheria disease.

The state Commissioner for Health, Dr. Abubakar Labaran Yusuf made the call in a press release issued by the Public Relations Unit of his ministry and made available to media organisations.

This, according to the release, is to further sensitise people on the imperativeness of sticking to the precaution measures by all with a view to diminishing the spread of diphtheria in Kano State.

He stressed that suspected persons should not mingle with healthy individuals while coughing and sneezing, adding that shaking hands was also among the major ways of transmitting the disease.
