13 corps members test positive for Coronavirus at Cross River camp


13 Corps members have reportedly tested positive for Coronavirus at Cross River State NYSC orientation camp.

The Commissioner for Health in Cross River State Betta Edu who commented on the 13 new cases recorded in the state on Sunday January 24, the highest so far in the state, said;

“We had people who came in from the NYSC, about 13 of them were positive cases. So, these are people who moved into our state from other states.

“The other ones are people who are residents in the state.

“However, it clearly shows that the second wave of the COVID-19 is here on us, so people need to improve on their level of adherence to all the COVID-19 protocols.

“It is also a call for the federal government to see that they can immediately come in and help Cross River State fix their lab so that we can do community sampling and testing and really have a true picture of what might be going on in communities, as we already do know that community spread is taking place."
