With no corp member infected with the virus, it has been a talking point in the Twitter community. See some of the reactions below.

I honestly believe all nysc Corps Members should be left in camp, at this moment it is quite safer for them. Movement in and out the camp can be controlled.

Now risk of contacting the virus is high because of everyone will intend to travel.#nysc #COVID19

NYSC camp can’t be fun to everyone. Some people can conveniently have fun despite the rigorous exercises while some can’t even withstand the whole tasks, so stop saying the #nysc camp is the interesting part.

If camp has to be suspended to save people, then it’s a smart decision
