Gov. Aminu Masari said this during a press briefing on Tuesday on the update on COVID-19 in the state.
He said that the government has trained pathologists who would do the investigation on the causes of the deaths in the state.
“The pathologists will investigate what is responsible for the massive deaths being recorded.
“Most of the people who died were elderly persons, without going to hospital.
“The pathologists will get samples of some of the dead persons to confirm whether it is as a result of COVID-19 or not,” he added.
The governor further advised residents to continue to observe measures in order to curb the spread of COVID-19.
He added that interstate movement would continue to be prohibited for now, until the situation improved.
