Coronavirus: NYSC abruptly ends orientation camp activities by Giditrendz: 6:12am On Mar 18
The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has abruptly ended activities at orientation camps across the country.

The Batch A orientation camps for graduates started last week, March 10, and were supposed to last for 21 days.

Corps members in the camps were, however, shocked when they were told in the middle of the night that the camps had closed and they were all to receive their letters to places of primary assignment.

The corps members said they were told this was due to the coronavirus crisis.
We started receiving letters to our places of primary assignment at about 1a.m. today, a corps member serving in Jos told PREMIUM TIMES.

Another serving in Gombe said they started receiving theirs very early on Wednesday.

The decision may have been influenced by yesterday’s resolution of the presidential task force that large public gatherings should be discouraged across the country.
The task force also banned foreign trips for public officials but did not restrict travels to Nigeria from countries with high cases of coronavirus.

It only said travellers from such countries would be on self-quarantine for 14 days during which they would be monitored.

The 11-member task force headed by the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha, announced its resolutions Tuesday night after a meeting in Abuja.

Nigeria has currently confirmed three cases of coronavirus and no deaths.
The disease has killed over 7,000 people globally, mainly in China, Italy, Iran and South Korea.

Good move.
Other countries who are better prepared to fight this virus are closing their borders and banning entry from a list of nationalities while a country whose doctors are going on strike in the middle of a global pandemic, has decided that it would allow everyone to keep coming in.
I don't know the brand of weed they are smoking in that ASO Rock. It seems really strong.

So all the efforts of those that whipped their body into shape for Mr Macho night were in vain? All those long morning and evening hours at the gym for nothing. The prospective fame and fawning at by females all blown into a crisp, vanishing into thin air by coronavirus.

Affected corps members won't be able to forget professor Ishaq Akintola in a hurry.

Time to avoid all social gatherings. This could have been prevented if the borders have been closed to travellers from Covid infected countries.

its a nice move... but i hope they are going to be paid their first allowee?
because most of those corpers who were posted to distant regions like the north... spent a huge sum of money on transportation to the orientation camp of which i know most of them borrowed.

Better, prevention is always better than cure. They should let them be with their parents and guidance

This is not a wise decision to me.

They corps members have been in camp close to two weeks now before the third corona case was detected in Lagos.

They are safer in camp than being outside for now when authorities are still trying to trace those who made contacts with the lady who tested positive.

This is very unnecessary and would cause avoidable panic.

You made sense... It's not like there is a new case in camp... So y the shut down. They should rather not allow visitors into the camp.
