Whooping Cough: 11 Children Die In Kano

The Kiru Local Government Council of Kano State says about 11 children have died of whooping cough at Kankwana village.

This is contained in a statement issued by the Information Officer of the local government council, Mallam Rabiu Khalil.

Khalil said about 40 other children affected by the same disease were receiving medical attention.

The council’s Health Officer, Mallam Hassan Adamu, who also confirmed the tragedy to the News Agency of Nigeria, however, assured the people of government’s effort to contain the outbreak.


A representative of the World Health Organisation, Mallam Yakubu Sani, in the area, attributed the outbreak to poor routine immunisation and inadequate health mobilisation activities.
