LUTH’s Chief Medical Director, Professor Christopher Bode, expressed gratitude to the Rotary district for the donation. “We thank your organisation very much for this generous support. In LUTH, we joined the fight against the Coronavirus very early and this has enabled us to treat more than 300 patients in this hospital and we have discharged more than 200,” he said, adding that “the hospital presently has about 88 patients in its ward as it has a lot of manpower and facilities.
“We are hoping to fight it to a standstill and by God’s grace, we will win”, Prof. Bode said.
The Chief Medical Director, LASUTH, Prof. Adetokunbo Fabamwo who is also a Rotarian, appreciated members of the Rotary club for their unending support.”
