COVID-19 scare: Sick traveller causes panic at Kano Airport

There was confusion at the Aminu Kano Airport Tuesday morning when the pilot of an Air Peace flight from Lagos refused to open the plane doors,insisting that health officials boarded the plane alongside passengers and crew members before take off.

He said this is to ensure custody of the first time passenger battling fever.

However, the media adviser to the Kano State governor, Salihu Tanko Yakasai has said that health officials who boarded the plane tested the passenger and discovered that he had malaria fever and not Covid 19 as the pilot had suspected.
