WHO lauds Kano Govt for scaling-up COVID-19 vaccination

”Sometime in the past, the Kano state was number 34 in COVID-19 vaccination exercise. But because of your commitment, Your Excellency, Kano is now number four in the exercise, which is a tremendous achievement indeed.

“Because of how your administration is scaling-up the exercise, some African countries are copying from the Kano government’s effort around that area,” Mulombo said.

“We are therefore requesting partnership in this area of malnutrition.

“We also need partnership in the area of public laboratory,” the governor said.
