Unpacking Falsehoods: COVID-19 and responses in Kano State

The Centre for Democracy and Development (CDD) held an online forum on April 28, 2020 to examine what was happening on the ground in Kano; to look into why Kano is experiencing the spike in deaths; to provide some clarity on the incoherent government response to the suspension in testing; and to potentially suggest policy solutions for state actors. The forum, held under Chatham House Rules, brought together five experts on communications, fake news, Kano politics, and Islamic principles.
