The UMC Hospital in Kano State Capital has been shut for attending to severe cases of Covid-19 instead of referring the patients to isolation centres provided by the state government.
Commissioner for Information, Malam Muhammad Garba in a statement said the action by UMC Hospital is in parallel with the standard set by the Kano State Task Force on Covid-19 which requires such facility to attend only to mild cases of the disease.
It was gathered that the behavior of the UMC Hospital led to the death of two patients whose cases were severe.
The Information Commissioner said the State Government shut down the UMC hospital to check the excesses of its management Staff who allowed admission of severe cases of Covid-19 instead of referring such cases to designed isolation centres.
