Amid the coronavirus pandemic and rising number of cases in Nigeria, two heroes fixed faulty ventilators at the Jos Teaching Hospital for free.
174 cases of coronavirus has been confirmed in Nigeria, and the virus attacks the respiratory system of victims, leaving some in dire situations needing ventilators.
There are not a lot of ventilators in Nigeria, while some are faulty, leading to growing concerns among many, if the number of cases in the country explodes.
Two men identified as, Gyang William and Nura Jibrin, took it upon themselves to fix the faulty ventilators at the Jos Teaching Hospital at no cost, and they even offered to manufacture new ones.
Sharing the information on Twitter, Gatiri Dakwak Asaolu, wrote;
“While the donations of multimillionaires is trending on social media, Gyang William and Nura Jibrin quietly walked into Jos University Teaching Hospital, JUTH and requested to fixed all their broken down ventilators at NO COST as part of their contribution to fight Covid-19.
They have actually fixed a total of 3 ventilators. They were fixing it and wish to build new ones.”
As expected, social media users have hailed the two men – and rightly so, see some reactions below;
@danleety: What makes the whole thing more beautiful is ,. They did it irrespective of religion
@ObiNwike: Buy that man a drink. Also let us know what type of support he needs to build more.
@ObinnaMbah2: Beautiful. If they can build, the government had better grant them the needed resources to set up shop ASAP.
@pamtoks: We Jos love humanity. God bless these good people. May God continue to increase them in wisdom, grace and strength. We are very proud of them
@babsded: What they are doing could be more impactful to the healthcare system than the donated billions that may mysteriously grow wings in the coming weeks. Love & Light to you both.
@nosietweets: God bless you guys, the problem we have in nigeria is that we pay less attention to preventive maintenance
