Ihekweazu called for collaboration with corps members to ensure sustenance of the measures.
He said: “The mistake we can all make is to think the #COVID19 virus has gone away.
“Corps members have to work collaboratively with us to sustain the goals we have made in mitigating the risk of transmission in orientation camps.”
