A Nigerian has taken to social media to share a video from what seems to be an empty isolation center located at Sani Abacha stadium in Kano state, where about 800 coronavirus patients in the state were allegedly kept.
He also alleged that the facility is still under construction, as he maintained that the state government has only been telling them to wash their hands, and wondered where the patients are isolating
