Hand sanitisers manufactured by the University of Lagos, UNILAG, have been donated to the Lagos University Teaching Hospital, LUTH.
The production and donation of hand sanitisers were to support the State and Federal Government in curbing the spread of COVID-19 in the country.
The Vice-Chancellor of UNILAG, Prof. Oluwatoyin Ogundipe stated that the sanitisers were produced by the university’s Department of Pharmaceutics and Pharmaceutical Technology in the Faculty of Pharmacy.
“The hand sanitisers, comprising gel and solution formulations, were produced by the Department of Pharmaceutics and Pharmaceutical Technology, Faculty of Pharmacy, and donated to the Chief Medical Director, Prof. Chris Bode, and the management of the Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH), Idi-Araba.
”This gesture is to identify with LUTH and by extension, Lagos State and our dear nation, in support of their courageous and patriotic fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.
”It is also for use by the frontline ‘warriors’ in the hospital healthcare team and other staff members caring for COVID-19 patients.
”This is a sacrifice that the university believes will be useful at this trying time. “We pray that God will terminate both the spread of this virus and the infections in human lives,” Ogundipe said.
