Kano State government has confirmed the outbreak of the deadly Diphtheria disease which is reported to have killed at least 25 persons in the state.

The State Commissioner for Health, Aminu Tsanyawa, revealed that the state emergency preparedness committee is currently in a meeting with a view to evaluating the casualty figures, and measures to address the situation.

The commissioner said the low routine immunization attributed to the spread of the disease is due to the hard-to-be-reached areas in the state.

Symptoms of the killer disease include sore throat, cough, drooling of saliva, change of voice, neck swelling, abnormal breathing, fever or mouth odor, among others.
