Following the multiple mysterious deaths in Kano state, the Kano state coronavirus team has revealed that autopsy can not be done for the dead bodies because their tradition and religion does not encourage such.
When asked in an interview with Sandra on Wazobia Fm Kani, why autopsy has not been done to the bodies of people who have died mysteriously, the Kano State’s COVID-19 Team said ”Kano tradition and religion doesn’t encourage autopsy, so we adopted verbal autopsy from families of the deceased. We will soon reveal our findings.”
They added that they use the words of the bereaved as a replacement for testing the corpses.

Recall that few hours ago, the Kano state Ministry of Health openly begged for prayers as it says it is currently investigating the reported rise in the number of deaths in the state and would soon address it.
