It has been revealed by the director-general of the Nigeria Center for Disease Control (NCDC), Chikwe Ihekweazu that a total of 138 members of the national youth service corps have tested positive for COVID-19.
This was disclosed by the director on November 23, while speaking at the daily briefing of the presidential taskforce on COVID-19, in Abuja.
Ihekwazu maintains that the safe reopening of the NYSC orientation camps across the country was successful and that none of the prospective corps members who tested positive was allowed into the camps.
The NCDC boss said those who tested positive were either managed at home or in a treatment centre depending on if they had symptoms and what state they were in.
