COVID-19: University of Ibadan (UI) Produces, Distributes 2000 Face Masks

COVID-19: University of Ibadan (UI) Produces, Distributes 2000 Face Masks &-8211; this Article or News was published on this date:2020-09-24 10:08:14 kindly share it with friends if you find it helpful

University of Ibadan (UI) has produced and distributed over 2,000 face masks to members of the university committee and neighbouring communities as part of the Institution’s contribution to the fight against the pandemic.

UI Face Masks

The University of Ibadan through its COVID-19 Response Committee produced and distributed over 2000 face masks to members of the university committee and neighbouring communities, Tuesday 28 April, 2020.

Speaking at the flag off of the distribution of the masks, the Deputy Vice Chancellor (Research, Innovation and Strategic Partnerships), Prof. Olanike K. Adeyemo said the university was aware of the huge number of people for whom buying a good face mask might be a difficult financial burden. These were the targeted beneficiaries of the UI donation.

Prof Adeyemo implored members of the University of Ibadan community to observe all the necessary rules for stemming the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“As Nigerians we joke with everything, and maybe that is part of our coping strategies but please, COVID-19 is not a matter for jokes. We must observe social distancing, handwashing, hand sanitising and use of masks.

“We are a praying nation, and I have no doubts that praying is working for us. That is why our fatality and infection rates are much lower than what obtain elsewhere. However, we must add obedience and precaution to our prayers”.

The production and distribution of the masks came about 14 hours after President Muhammadu Buhari made it mandatory for all Nigerians to wear face masks as a way of curtailing widely spreading COVID-19 infections. This followed four weeks of lockdown in Lagos and Ogun States, and in the Federal Capital Territory. While extending the lockdown by one week, the President called on institutions and organisations to intensify the fight against COVID-19. The University of Ibadan was among the first to heed that call.

Partnering with the University of Ibadan is the GIS Konsult which among others, developed an app to help monitor the distribution of the facemasks and other UI interventions. Through the app, further research would be made possible on the impact of the efforts of the University of Ibadan in curbing COVID-19.

Following the flag off, volunteers took batches of the masks to the junior staff quarters known as Abadina and Agbowo community for distribution.

About a month ago, the University of Ibadan set up a comprehensive committee to handle its response to COVID-19. Individuals experiencing symptoms are advised to call:

Here are some simple precautions to reduce your chances of contracting the new coronavirus, which causes the disease known as COVID-19.

Protect Yourself From the New Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19)

Preventative measures are your first line of defense. The best way to protect yourself from COVID-19 is to practice good hygiene and to make these CDC recommendations part of your routine.

Steps to protect Yourself:

Clean your hands often

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
  • If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Cover all surfaces of your hands and rub them together until they feel dry.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.

Avoid close contact

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick
  • Put distance between yourself and other people if COVID-19 is spreading in your community. This is especially important for people who are at higher risk of getting very sick.

Note that most people who become infected experience mild illness and recover, but it can be more severe for others. Take care of your health and protect others by doing the following:

Stay aware of the latest information on the COVID-19 outbreak, available on the WHO website.
