Jerry Mallo, the Nigerian man who created the first carbon fibre sports car in 2019, has built a state-of-the-art ventilator as a solution to the scarcity of the equipment in the country.
It should be noted that the machine is still undergoing some technical upgrades so as to meet the world's standard on production.
When showcasing the machine, the creator said building it is necessary as there is a strong need for a kind of ventilator that is accessible and cheap.
He said that African countries have been facing the serious need to get one that is affordable in order to powerfully combat the pandemic.

Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za earlier reported that the Ooni of Ife, Oba Enitan Ogunwusi, has given the Lagos government three locally made motorized fumigators in the fight against the pandemic in the state.
Added to those is a large drone sprinkler that could be used for wide aerial fumigation. He did the formal presentation of the donations to the state governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu.
During the presentation, the monarch said that he was inspired to give because of the great ways world leaders have been dealing with the deadly virus, VON reports.
The Ooni of Ife also said that the locally made pieces of equipment are eco-friendly because of how their materials were sourced.
Oba Enitan added that Lagos being the epicenter of the virus in Nigeria needs all the support it can get. The governor, on the other hand, commended the king for his support.
Sanwo-Olu said that to beat the virus, everybody would have to come together and deal with the deadly disease collectively.
In other news, the Chinese government mandated their students to wear one-meter hats as a way to keep social distancing in their classrooms after schools resumed from a three-month lockdown.
A video seen by the media shows how the hats are made with sticks on both ends to ensure that nobody comes close to the wearer at one metre.
The government is putting up this unconventional method as it continues to seek ways to ease the lockdown that has been active for three months.
