Earlier today, the government sealed the Parliament House after thirty staffers contracted coronavirus last week. The Parliament house building will remain closed till the 9th of November.
As per the reports, the CDA (Capital Development Authority) presumed the responsibility of disinfecting the building whereas the officials including Asad Qaiser Speaker National Assembly, Senate Chairperson Sadiq Sanjrani are isolating themselves at home due to the exposure.
On the other hand, the National Assembly and Senate both have canceled all the scheduled meetings and will reschedule them soon.
Even though, the parliament house opens, not all staff will be allowed to resume work, only a few staffers will be selected to resume their duties.
People in the Senate and National Assembly unashamedly violated the SOPs prescribed by the government.
Now, a monitoring system along with CCTV cameras will be installed in the Parliament House. Moreover, special employees will be positioned inside in order to ensure the implementation of the SOPs.
Parliament House has been sealed for the second time after some staffers were detected with the novel coronavirus.
Soon after the outbreak of the coronavirus in March, Asad Qaiser Speaker of National Assembly, and his family tested positive for COVID-19. They all recovered last month.
Likewise, Saleem Mandviwala Senate Deputy Chairperson also tested positive for COVID-19 in September but recovered within 15 days.
