As the effect of the novel coronavirus ravages on, football and sports personalities continue to extend hand of help to cushion the effect t of the virus.

From money donations to clinical equipments, these personalities have made effort to help their countries’ health system or government or their immediate environment.

A player who has joined the fray in these generous gestures is Portuguese midfielder and Wolverhampton player, Ruben Nerves.

The midfielder made a donation worth around €33,000 for a hospital in Portugal.

It is reported that Neves has donated two ventilators for those who are in intensive care helping the Portuguese health system in the fight against Coronavirus.

Reuters reported that hospitals struggled to cope with a shortage of life-saving ventilators to treat coronavirus patients and this led to a group of volunteers from Portugal to launch on some days ago a unique platform hoping to bring old, unused medical equipment back to life.

Hence, the need for ventilators cannot be overemphasized at this time.

Portugal has 6,408 cases of coronavirus, with 140 deaths and 43 recovered, according to figures from Johns Hopkins University.
