In what will come across as a rather startling development, some NYSC members have tested positive for coronavirus.
According to The Nation, no fewer than eight members of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) posted to Wailo orientation camp in the Ganjuwa Local Government Area of Bauchi have tested positive for coronavirus.
He said chairman of the agency, Dr Rilwanu Mohammed, has instructed a surveillance team to carry out sample collection and investigation of all corp members undergoing training in the camp to avoid de-escalation.
He added a holding room has since been allocated by the State Director of the NYSC for those that are suspected to be positive cases.
It stated further it has also conducted series of meetings to underscore the magnitude of the emerging new cases.
