The project which will be handed over to the Nigerian Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) through the FCDA upon completion, is being supported by other partners in keeping with the spirit of collaboration which has seen the nation rise to the challenge of tackling the scourge as one indivisible and cohesive unit.

China Civil Engineering Construction Corporation (CCECC) Nigeria facilitated the civil works required to prepare the ThisDay Dome for seamless conversion into the isolation center at no cost. This has since paved the way for ongoing extensive construction work aimed at delivering the facility on schedule.

Other partners include; the Arise News, Egbin Power Plc, Abuja Electricity Distribution Company (AEDC), Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) representing stakeholders in the oil industry, Africa Finance Corporation (AFC), and Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN).
