Covid-19: BUA donates 20 vehicles and 5 ambulances

The Kano State Government has received 20 vehicles and 5 ambulances from BUA foundations as part of his contributions towards the fight against Corona virus in Kano state.

According to reports, the vehicles and ambulances from from Abdul Samad Isyaku Rabiu’s BUA foundation is to ensure a smooth operation in mitigating the spread of Corona virus in Kano State.

Rabiu said: “I should tell you that these vehicles and ambulances are to support the state government’s good effort in controlling this COVID-19 pandemic from contact tracing to movement of supplies, logistics and also, quick response to clinical cases.”

While receiving the kind gestures, the Kano State Governor Umar Ganduje appreciated BUA foundations adding that the donation came at the right time.

Ganduje said: “There is no doubt we have opened collection centres in all the 44 local government areas of the state. For the distant local governments, there is one collection centre each.

“But for the eight metropolitan local governments, we are opening about 100 collection centres so that we can feed the laboratories at testing centres with enough samples each day.

“There is no doubt we have to increase our capacity in collecting samples, and it would probably lead to house-to-house collection of samples. The more we collect samples, the more we understand the seriousness of the situation and put frameworks in place to curtail the spread of the coronavirus.

“So in short, we have all that it takes at the moment to fight the pandemic. We are building our capacity with the help of technical teams from the Presidential Task Force in Abuja.

“We will swing into action by tomorrow, as some policy statements would be made in respect of the new fight against the coronavirus.”
