17 NYSC MEMBERS REPORTEDLY CONTRACT COVID-19 IN EDO

No fewer than 17 Corps members deployed to Edo State for the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), have been admitted to the Stella Obasanjo Hospital on Sapele Road, Benin, after they showed symptoms of COVID-19.

This was disclosed by Dr Osagie Ebomwonyi, the Chief Medical Director (CMD) of the hospital in the company of the state Governor, Godwin Obaseki during an inspection tour of the state’s infectious disease isolation centre, in Benin. According to Ebomwonyi, though the new cases were people who haven’t been vaccinated, a study is currently underway to find out if the new Delta variant was now present in the state.

The Edo Coordinator of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) Personal Assistant, Mr. Ozeto Waheed, confirmed that the 17 Corps members were mobilized to serve in the state. He further explained that members of the scheme are always first tested at the gate of the orientation camp for the virus, and those who test positive are usually moved to the isolation centre.

The state governor, Godwin Obaseki on his part, confirmed the readiness of his administration to effectively deal with the Delta variant of COVID-19 while insisting there had been no confirmed case of the variant in Edo.
