According to report reaching oyogist.com, The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has denied that some corps members tested positive to coronavirus.
On Friday, Bauchi State Government disclosed that 8 corps members at the NYSC camp in Wailo, Ganjuwa Local Government Area, were infected.
Ibrahim Sani, Information Officer, Bauchi State Primary Healthcare Development Agency, made the confirmation in a statement.
In a statement made available to oyogist.com, Adenike Adeyemi, Corps Director of Public Relations, insisted the information was untrue.
Adeyemi said graduates that tested positive were not admitted but referred to the NCDC for treatment.
“Therefore, reporting that 8 Corps Members undergoing Orientation Course in Bauchi State tested positive to COVID-19 is very misleading, as there is no COVID-19 positive Corps Member in Bauchi Camp or any of the NYSC Camps”, the official stressed
