President Muhammadu Buhari has signed off N6.45 billion for the setting up of gas plants in 38 locations nationwide to help in the treatment of Coronavirus patients who need oxygen.

Zainab Ahmed, Minister of Finance, disclosed this during a national executive council (NEC) meeting in Abuja on Thursday, January 21. She stated that the president assented to the release of the funds for the production of oxygen as necessitated by the increased number of patients who need oxygen due to the surge in COVID infections in the country.

The development comes barely two days after Lagos state governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, disclosed that the demand for oxygen at the Infectious Disease Hospital in Yaba area of the state has risen from 70 to 350 cylinders per day.

Governor Sanwo-olu had said the increase of COVID19 cases necessitated an increase in the amount of oxygen for moderate to severe cases of admission in all the isolation centers in Lagos.
