The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) on Wednesday said there are no COVID-19 positive corps members in any of its orientation camps nationwide.

This was contained in a statement signed by the NYSC Director, Press and Public Relations, Mrs Adenike Adeyemi, in Abuja.

The NYSC explained that all prospective corps members must undergo COVID-19 tests before being admitted into any of the camps nationwide.

“Only those that tested negative are admitted, the same rule applies to camp officials. Those that test positive are handed over to the NCDC for treatment and management,” she said.

The statement reads: “Attention of the NYSC management has been drawn to a story with the caption ‘ NYSC CAMPS ON RED ALERT AS 109 TEST POSITIVE FOR COVID-19’ making the rounds in both the mainstream and news media.

”Management wishes to state that the caption and body of the story are very misleading.

”It is pertinent to state that there is a gulf of difference between a corps member and a prospective corps member.

”One becomes a corps member after admittance to the camp, he/she registers and is administered the Oath of National Allegiance.

”Anyone, who is mobilised for service, but has not gone through the aforesaid process is not yet a corps member.

”Consequently, our partners-in-progress and members of the Fourth Estate of the Realm should kindly take note of this explanation for proper guidance in reportage.”

The NYSC assured Nigerians that all corps members, as well as camp officials admitted into the camps, are all COVID-19 negative.
