PPE

Health workers under the aegis of the National Association of Nigeria Nurses and Midwives (NANNM), have cried out over lack of necessary Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).

PPE includes goggles and protective clothing designed to protect the wearer’s body from infection.

Maikudi stressed that his members could not afford to take risks, considering the novel coronavirus that has been declared a global pandemic by the World Health Organisation (WHO).

“While preparing and mobilising our members to be prepared in case they come in contact with patients, we also advised them to take safety measures while discharging their duties.

“We are calling on Bauchi government to provide PPE in the facilities across the state,” he said.
