University of Lagos provides LIVE updates on COVID-19

24th April 2020

As part of efforts to support information gathering on infections, the University of Lagos’ Centre for Information, Technology and Systems (CITS) has developed a website that provides live updates on COVID-19 cases by State in Nigeria.

Also, the Faculty of Pharmacy has produced and donated hand sanitizers to the Lagos University Teaching Hospital to bolster efforts aimed at fighting the Coronavirus in medical institutions. Furthermore, given the urgent need for respirators for supportive care across the various States in Nigeria, the University is fast-tracking efforts to develop a low cost and rapidly deployable Ambubag ventilator as well as work on the adaptation of existing ventilators to cater for up to ten patients at a time.
