The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) in Anambra says one prospective corps member in Anambra has been diagnosed with COVID-19.
Kehinde Aremu, Coordinator of the scheme in the state, said this on Monday during the swearing-in of 800 members of 2020 Batch ‘B’ stream 1A corps members at the permanent orientation camp, Umuawulu/Mbaukwu.
This brought a level of concern to the prospective corps members and the camp officials however, Mr. Aremu said NYSC was working with the National Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) to enable it to manage the corps members as well as ensure operations of the scheme were not interrupted.
“All our activities are arranged sequentially and in agreement with the Presidential Task Force (PTF) and NCDC guidelines whose officials are also resident here to administer COVID-19 tests on both camp officials and corps members”.
