Six Almajiris deported from Kano State have tested positive for Coronavirus in Bauchi state.

The Kano State Government had sent many Almajiris back to their state of origin as part of measures to curb the spread of COVID-19.

“Six more Almajiri children that were returned from Kano State are among the positive results we got.
