Deaths in Nigerian city raise concerns over undetected COVID-19 outbreaks

“Nigeria’s president has announced an immediate two-week lockdown in Kano, the largest city in the north, after local reports of a big rise in deaths in recent days. The federal government would deploy ‘all the necessary human, material and technical resources’ to support Kano state, Muhammadu Buhari said on Monday night. Doctors in Kano say they have seen a surge in fatal cases of pneumonia.”
