UNICEF donates 115,000 COVID-19 test kits to NCDC

The Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) has received a boost in its response to the COVID-19 pandemic, as it received 115,000 COVID-19 test kits from the United Nations (UN) Children’s Fund (UNICEF).

The NCDC received the donations yesterday from the UNICEF Representative, Ms Rushnan Murtaza, at the NCDC National Reference Laboratory in Abuja.

She noted that the donation is funded by IHS Towers as part of its contribution to curbing the COVID-19 pandemic in Nigeria.

Murtaza said: “Today, we are here with IHS Nigeria once again to present vital test kits and supplies.

“The kits were procured through donations by IHS Nigeria to UNICEF to strengthen the fund’s support for the Nigerian government’s response to the COVID-19 emergency.”

She said since the COVID-19 pandemic hit Nigeria, IHS Towers had twice extended financial support to UNICEF to facilitate provision of essential equipment and test kits crucial in the response to curb the virus.
