The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has donated three ventilators to two General hospitals to support the Federal Government’s fight against Coronavirus in the country.
This was disclosed in a statement, signed by Dr Fabian Benjamin, Head of Media and Publicity of the board on Wednesday in Abuja.
JAMB said the gesture was prompted by ongoing collective support in the country to contain the spread of the virus in the country.
“The board appreciates the support and donations from corporate bodies and individuals toward complementing government’s efforts, aimed at containing the spread of the pandemic.
“This efforts are also aimed at treating those already infected by the virus.
“In our 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.
“Another one is donated to the principal hospital in the Board’s host community, the Bwari General Hospital, Abuja, in preparation for any eventuality.
“This was borne out of the board’s desire to plan in line with federal government’s determination to ensure that no Nigerian succumbed to the virus.
