138 People Test Positive To Covid Across NYSC Camps

No fewer than 138 people including both Corp members and staff members has tested positive to Covid-19 across the various NYSC camps.

The Director-General of the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC), Dr Chikwe Ihekweazu, disclosed this on Monday at the briefing of the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19 in Abuja.

He said a total of 34,685 people has been tested since the reopening of the NYSC camps.

In his words, "We tested over the last few weeks a total, so far, of 34,785 people of which we found a total of 138 positive only.”

“So, we have a total prevalence of 0.4 per cent; in fact, about one in 200 new people coming into the camps turned out to be positive.

“None of them were allowed into the camp; all of them were excluded and either managed at home or the treatment centre depending on if they had symptoms and what state they were in,” the NCDC boss added
