COVID-19: JAMB donates three ventilators

 

 

 

 

 

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board has donated three ventilators to the University of Abuja Teaching Hospital, Gwagwalada and Bwari General Hospital for the fight against coronavirus.

JAMB’s Head of Media and Information, Dr Fabian Benjamin disclosed this in a statement yesterday in Abuja.

Dr. Benjamin noted that the donation of the three ventilators was to strategically place the two hospitals in good stead to give necessary treatment to COVID -19 patients.

He said the board would continue to support the fight against the virus within its limited means.

The statement reads: “In the board’s own little way of ensuring that government strategies and preemptive measures yield fruitful dividends, the board has donated two ventilators to the University of Abuja Teaching Hospital, Gwagwalada and one to the principal hospital in the board’s host community, the Bwari General Hospital, in preparation for any eventuality.

“This proactiveness was borne out of the board’s desire to plan in line with the Federal Government’s determination to ensure that no Nigerian succumbed to the virus.

“The donation of these ventilators which cost several millions is to strategically place these Hospitals in good stead to give necessary treatment to COVID-19 patients whether in Bwari or any other part of Abuja.

“However, this gesture was in addition to the several other interventions aimed at aiding the fight against the virus.

“The board will continue to support the fight against the pandemic within its limited means and by so doing, protect our teeming candidates who are the hopes of tomorrow.

“As we stay at home, the board urges all to stay safe.
