(AFRICAN EXAMINER) – For effective management of COVID-19 pandemic, the United States has handed over 200 ventilators to the Federal Government (FG) on Tuesday.
The medical equipment was handed over Tuesday morning to the Minister of Health, Dr. Osagie Ehanire, by the US Ambassador to Nigeria, Mary Leonard, at a ceremony in Abuja.
Recall that the US President Donald Trump during a telephone conversation with his Nigerian counterpart, Muhammadu Buhari in April 2020 promised he would send the equipment.
Many Nigerians on social media have asked why the ventilators were taking too long to arrive the country especially at the time the pandemic was at it its peak.
