Speaker Orders Fumigation Of Parliament Amid COVID-19 Fears

The Speaker of Parliament has ordered the immediate fumigation of the precincts of the House.

This forms part of measures to prevent the spread of Coronavirus in the House.

“The fumigation of every inch of Parliament where we operate should be done immediately. Tomorrow we should see progress in that regard.”

“This is rather important. Some have made very serious arrangements and rearrangements and we should continue to consider these…Even in the matter of state of emergency, Parliament must be around to take steps,” the Speaker said.

The Speaker of Parliament had early on also advised MPs to shun greeting by handshaking and physical contact.

Prof. Oquaye also said the House had placed hand sanitizers at vantage points in a bid to strengthen measures against the pandemic.

“Transmission has been identified particularly through handshaking and using the hands on the face. Sanitizers have been put at vantage points. We [parliamentarians] need to keep sanitizing our hands,” the Speaker said.
