Meanwhile, amid the ravaging Coronavirus pandemic, Members of the National Association of Resident Doctors, NARD, had threatened to go on strike if the Federal Government does not provide Personal Protective Equipment, PPEs, pay COVID-19 inducement allowances, and recall sacked resident doctors at the Jos University Teaching Hospital.
The doctors noted “the perpetual lack of personnel protective equipment, PPEs, in tertiary teaching hospital,” and alled on the Federal and state governments to provide adequate PPEs such as N95 respirators, gloves among others, to all health workers.
