Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State has appealed to health workers in the state not to pay total attention to COVID-19 patients while neglecting those suffering from other ailments.

The governor made the appeal on Friday at the opening of the second batch of Training on Infection Prevention and Control for Healthcare Workers in General Hospitals, held at Tahir Guest Palace.

According to Mr Ganduje, paying attention to other patients suffering from other ailments will also reduce the rate of deaths in the state.

“Women and children should be attended to. Other diseases should be taken care of; otherwise, our fight against COVID-19 will be of no use if we neglect other diseases. Therefore, I implore you to pay attention to non-COVID-19 patients so that our healthcare services will go in unison,” Mr Ganduje said.

The governor also noted that the capacity building was timely, expressing optimism that the training would equip the state’s health workers to be combat-ready to contain any outbreak of infection in the state.
