The US government has donated Nigeria some 200 ventilators to help its fight against the COVID-19 pandemic, the aid-receiving country said on Tuesday.
Axar.az reports citing foreign media.
The delivery of ventilators took place during a ceremony where US Ambassador in Abuja Mary Beth Leonard officially handed over the devices to Nigeria’s top health official Osagie Ehanire, the Health Ministry said on Twitter.
"This donation consists of 200 ventilators which are critical components of the response strategy that will help to save the lives of persons who have been severely impacted by #COVID19,” Ehanire was quoted as saying.
"These ventilators will be of great benefit to the people of #Nigeria,” he added.
