The Niger State Government has debunked claims that some members of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) tested positive for COVID-19 at the ongoing orientation camp in Paiko.

The state Commissioner for Health, Dr Muhammed Makusidi, who denied the widespread claims in a statement on Sunday said any suspected case was not allowed entrance into the camp but taken to Minna for PCR confirmation.

He maintained that once a case is confirmed positive, such a person is immediately admitted at the state isolation centre and treated.

“We wish to state that in line with the directives of the Nigeria Center for Disease Control (NCDC) all prospective corps members are screened at the camp’s gate using RDT kits.”

He noted that the said 15 cases were not at the ongoing orientation camp in Paiko, but were at the isolation centre and were in stable condition.

He said the Paiko orientation camp was free of COVID-19 and appealed to all corps members and staff of the scheme to feel free to go about their normal businesses in the camp.
