The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has donated three ventilators to the University of Abuja Teaching Hospital, Gwagwalada and the Bwari General Hospital for the fight against coronavirus pandemic.
JAMB’s Head of Media and Information, Fabian Benjamin disclosed this in a statement on Thursday.
“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 statement read.
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.
