Covid-19 patient writes WAEC in Gombe isolation centre

A candidate who tested positive for Covid-19 in Gombe State on Monday wrote his first paper in the ongoing West African Senior School Certificate Examination from an isolation centre.

The unnamed male candidate wrote his Mathematics examination under the supervision of an invigilator who was fully kitted in a Personal Protective Equipment.

The Gombe State Public Health Emergency Operations Centre disclosed this in a message posted on its Twitter handle, @GombePHEOC, today.

The candidate was simply identified as a final year student of Government Senior Secondary School, Gombe.

The tweet read, “Health and education are a priority in Gombe State. A final year student of GSSS Gombe tested positive for COVID-19 and was isolated yesterday (Sunday), today (Monday), he is writing Mathematics SSCE while ensuring his invigilator is well protected.”
