Mrs. Walida Isa, Coordinator, National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), Federal Capital Territory, stated that five potential members of the Corps had been tested positive for COVID-19.
It was revealed in Abuja on Monday at the swearing-in ceremony of the 2020 Batch ‘B’ Stream 1 Corps Members.
Isa, who did not disclose their names, said that 853 members of the corps had been enrolled after being tested for COVID-19.
“The five that were positive were taken to the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control for treatment. So they’re not among the number we registered,” Isa said.
Recall that the 2020 Batch `B’ Stream 1A orientation resumed camping on Nov. 10 and a week was used to test the corps members on COVID-19 before registration.
