8 Corps Members Test Positive For Covid19 In Bauchi Orientation Camp.
No fewer than eight members of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) posted to Wailo orientation camp
in the Ganjuwa Local Government Area of Bauchi have tested positive for coronavirus.
Also, two more persons have died of suspected yellow fever, raising the number of deaths so far recorded at 10 since the disease outbreak last week.
Information Officer of Bauchi Primary Healthcare Agency,

He said chairman of the agency, Dr Rilwanu Mohammed, has instructed a surveillance team to carry out sample
collection and investigation of all corp members undergoing training in the camp to avoid de-escalation.
He added a holding room has since been allocated by the State Director of the NYSC for those that are suspected to be positive cases.
