138 members of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) have tested positive to Coronavirus.
The Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) disclosed this on Monday.
Director General, NCDC, Dr Chikwe Ihekweazu, noted that none of those who tested positive was allowed into the camps.
According to him, out of the 34,785 corps members and members of the camp communities that was tested only 138 came out positive representing 0.4 per cent prevalence.
“It means one out of 200 people,” he explained.
He added that those who tested positive were either managed in a treatment centre or at home, depending on if they had symptoms and what state they were in.
Meanwhile, he said that the next challenge would be how to work with education stakeholders to ensure the safe reopening of universities.
“Universities are slightly riskier and present unique challenges, but we are confident that we can address this as we have done in other sectors like aviation,” Ihekweazu said.
