He further revealed that the state has about 15 suspected cases, whose samples have been taken to Abuja, and are awaiting the results.

Dr Shamsudeen Yahaya, the Executive Secretary of the Agency, said the distribution of medicare in the state, is to be readily proactive against any unforeseen circumstances, especially with the setting in of the rainy season, adding that the Call Centre will serve as a mechanism to report suspected diseases or deaths.
