NYSC Responsible For Surge In COVID-19 Cases In Nigeria – Lai Mohammed
The National Youth Service Corps, or NYSC, is one of two factors, according to Lai Mohammed, Minister of Information, for the increase in COVID-19 cases in the country.
According to the minister, individuals who defy COVID-19 safety standards should be held responsible for the rise in COVID-19 instances in NYSC camps across the country.
According to Mohammed, more positive COVID-19 cases have lately been reported in Nigeria as a result of the federal government’s intensified COVID-19 testing.
“Two things are responsible for the high cases of pandemic reported at the National Youth Service Corps camps. One is because of consistent testing that has been taking place in NYSC camps.
“The second reason for the high cases is that Nigerians have actually let down their guards,” the Minister said.
Lai Mohammed added that Nigerians no longer observe precautionary measures such as spcial distancing, washing and sanitising of hands regularly.
