Tuberculosis in Jigawa

No fewer than 200 children have been confirmed to have tuberculosis disease in Sara town, Gwaram Local Government Area of Jigawa.

The Head of Department of Water, Sanitation and Hygiene in the state, Alhaji Muhammad Maisamari, confirmed this on Monday through Malam Nasiru Yusif, the Information Officer of the affected local government council.

Maisamari said that the council had already quarantined the affected children.

He also said that the council had provided drugs and other logistics for the treatment of victims.

The HOD said that the department was able to bring the situation under control and was taking necessary measures to avoid spread of the disease to other communities.

Maisamari also appealed to residents of the council to report the outbreak of any disease to the appropriate authorities for quick response.

Why does airborne/communicable disease strive well in the north?
Low literacy level? High povery level? abi na overpopulated spaces.
Health workers over to una. I hear some of them even evade immunisations.
Mehn the rich northerners live in a world of their own upnorth.

They should be properly quarantined because tuberculosis is a highly communicable disease...I'm suspecting this is as a result of the harmattan.

What rubbish. Dumb slow response government. In saner societies commissioner for health and minister should be sacked. How did it get to 200 innocent helpless children just in one local government. How many remain? God please heal them. Please have mercy. They are healed in Jesus Name.
