At least 25 potential members of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) in the state have tested positive for covid-19.

Dr. Habu Dahiru, the Commissioner for Health, revealed the fact to press yesterday. He said the corps members were tested during the previous three days.

He said that the sick corps members had been sent to the state’s isolation facility at the Kwadon Idris Mohammed infectious disease institute.

“Of the 1,291 people tested using the Polymerase Chain Reaction, 25 were positive, one of them is a nursing mother,” Dahiru explained.

“For the purpose of coordination, the incident management system in Gombe convened a meeting at the Public Health Emergency Operation Center, and we also relocated corps members to the Kwadon isolation center as mandated by the guideline.

“We have provided for their meals, medication, and protection at the isolation center.

“We have drafted police to ensure the area’s security. They will be isolated until they test negative, at which point they will be released to their fellow corps members.

“We’ve also offered psychosocial assistance for those who are asymptomatic and may be wondering why they’re being held there. As a result, we had to teach them that they are a risk to the broader public since they will unknowingly infect others.

“Now that we have information about their states and local governments, we will contact the impacted states and request that they send representatives to their residences to do contact tracing.”
