Among those hospitalized were also reported 50 patients who are undergoing kidney-related treatment, because of complications arising from the consumption of the killer drinks, Kano State Commissioner for Health Aminu Ibrahim Tsanyawa said on Thursday.
Speaking in a short video he said the affected persons were being treated in government hospitals.
“As you are aware, the Ministry of Health had in the recent past announced the outbreak of a strange disease traceable to the consumption of substandard juices,” Tsanyawa said.
“The consumption of these fake or substandard products have telling effects on the kidney, and vital organs of the body.”
The State Consumer Protection Council has launched conducting searches in Kano markets, and making seizures. It was gathered the batches of some of the products show that the drinks had expired over a year ago.
