A rather bright student who hails from Ahmadu Bello University in Zaria, Kaduna State, has been lauded on social media for designing and manufacturing a “manual ventilator” in 2 days to aid in the treatment of Coronavirus patients.
Usman Dalhatu, 20, from Gombe state, is a 200-level student of Mechanical Engineering at the Ahmadu Bello University (ABU).
Usman, who has been an inventor since his secondary school days, made the manual ventilator with locally sourced materials.
Usman said he designed and produced the manual ventilator as part of the effort to assist the Federal Government to fight the Coronavirus pandemic.
