Five prospetive NYSC members tests positive for Covid-19 in Abuja
The Coordinator, National Youth Service Corps, Federal Capital Territory, Mrs Walida Isa, says five corps members have tested positive for COVID-19.
Isa made this known at the swearing-in of the 2020 Batch `B’ Stream 1 corps members on Monday in FCT.
The coordinator, who did not reveal their names, said that 853 corps members were registered after they were tested for the virus.
She said that 858 corps members were tested for COVID- 19 and out of the number, five of them were positive.
“The five that were positive were taken to the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control for treatment. So they are not among the number we registered,” she said.
The 2020 Batch `B’ Stream 1A orientation resumed camping on November 10.
One week was used to test the corps members on COVID-19 before the commencement of the registration.
