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

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

Chairman of the Bauchi State chapter, Ibrahim Maikudi, told the press on Wednesday that nurses needed to protect themselves in the course of their duties.

Already, Governor Bala Mohammed has tested positive to the deadly coronavirus.

Maikudi said his members could not afford to take risk in view of the disease declared a global pandemic by the World Health Organisation (WHO)

He added that the association had mobilised its members to join efforts targeted toward curbing the spread COVID-19.

“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.
