He stated over seven-hundred corps members out of twenty-two,000 youths tested for COVID-19 had tested positive for the virus.

The minister urged the corps members to adjust to the COVID-19 protocols as a way to test the spread of the virus in camps.

Dare stated: “Any orientation camp that’s not obeying the protocol will simply be closed as the NYSC can’t afford to risk the lives and health of corps members.”
