Dangote gifts Kano 400-capacity Covid-19 test lab

Billionaire Aliko Dangote has donated a mobile laboratory able to handle 400 samples daily to augment the testing capacity in Kano state.

Governor Abdullahi Ganduje revealed this yesterday during a press briefing organised by the state Taskforce committee on covid-19 which took place at the Africa House in Kano.

He disclosed that the test centre with daily capacity of taking 400 samples, is expected to arrive Kano tomorrow, Monday.

According to Ganduje, “As we are targeting more Testing Centres in the state, the richest man in Africa, Alhaji Aliko Dangote is donating Mobile Testing Centre with the capacity of testing 400 people daily. The facility is coming to Kano in the next two days, by Monday.”

He lamented about the rising cases of positive COVID-19 patients in the state, describing it as “a thing of great concern.”

He said, “Though we are aware that with the bouncing back of the Aminu Aminu Kano Teaching Hospital Testing Centre with the capacity of 88 samples per day, and the coming up of another Testing Centre at Bayero University, Kano, with the capacity of 20 samples per day, would mean another rise in the identified positive cases.”
