Bayero University, Kano (BUK) has put together a team of engineers to manufacture ventilators and a team of chemists to manufacture hand disinfectants. See the details below.
To strengthen the government’s efforts and capacity to mitigate and contain the effects of the novel coronavirus in Kano, if it should hit the state, a team of engineers at Bayero University in Kano (BUK) was commissioned to use ventilators for use in the establish state treatment and isolation centers.
A statement signed on Thursday by the Dean of the Faculty of Engineering, Professor Salisu Dan’Azumi, and addressed to journalists in Kano, said a seven-member committee had been set up to manufacture prototype ventilators for emergencies in hospitals and hospitals and other isolation centers in canoe.
According to Dan’Azumi, the committee chaired by Professor Abdussamad U. Jibia from the Institute of Mechatronics should design and manufacture a prototype of a ventilator to be used as an emergency measure in our hospitals. He said the committee, which had been in action since then, had two weeks to submit its report to the faculty council, including the design and construction of a prototype emergency respirator in hospitals and homes for the treatment of patients with # COVID19 -Pandemic.
Professor Dan ‘Azumi also announced that the committee is responsible for proposing the modality for the mass production of the designed and manufactured ventilators, and added that if the equipment is successfully manufactured, the dean’s office will contact the university management for sponsorship and possibly contact relevant agencies such as the Nigeria Center for Disease Control (NCDC), federal and state governments for mass production.
He said the team brainstormed to achieve the desired goals. Other members of the committee are: Professor Ibrahim Abdullahi from the Department of Mechanical Engineering; Dr. Habibu Rabiu from the Electrical Engineering Department; Dr. Mustapha Mohammed, Mechatronics Department; Dr. Mubarak D. Mohammed from the Mechanical Engineering Department; Dr. Amir A. Bature from the Department of Electrical Engineering and Dr. Ado Haruna from the Mechatronics Department.
In a similar development, the university has mobilized specialists from the department for pure and industrial chemistry to produce hand disinfectants for use in the university community. Daily Trust learned that a number of the department’s staff, who volunteered to participate in the project to help combat their COVID-19 quota, are currently in the labs for the disinfectant based on the World Health Organization specifications (WHO).
