No fewer than eight corp members have been tested positive for COVID-19 in Bauchi.
The corpers who were posted to Wailo orientation camp in the Ganjuwa Local Government Area of Bauchi have tested positive to coronavirus.
Two more persons in the state have died of suspected yellow fever, raising the number of deaths so far recorded at 10 since the disease outbreak last week.
