The Federal Government says four stadia in the country will be used as isolation centres in the fight against coronavirus pandemic.

It also said all National Youth Service Corps orientation camps in the country would as well be used as isolation centers.
 
Minister of Youth and Sports, Sunday Dare, made this known on Friday via Twitter.

He wrote, "Mr. President has approved for the Ministry of Youth and Sports to open and make available the stadiums in Surulere Lagos, Ibadan, Abuja and Kaduna, as well as our NYSC camps nationwide for use as isolation centers as they are needed. We are in touch with relevant authorities."
