SENATORS expressed their concern on the laxity of measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in Parliament yesterday.

This was after senators noticed that at the Parliament entrance there was no sanitisation by those who had come to Parliament and screening for temperatures was also not done.

Usually at the parliament entrance people are sanitised and their temperatures taken at the door but that was not the case yesterday. Issue Senator Mkhululi Dlamini raised this issue at Senate and said this is one issue which must be taken seriously.

He said he was surprised as to why they were not sanitised. Senators were also urged to take the matter of wearing masks properly seriously as there were some who had their masks just loosely hanging from their faces.

Some of them did complain that the face masks were uncomfortable and made breathing hard. masks Deputy Prime Minister Themba Masuku urged the Senators to wear masks to prevent putting those next to them at risk of getting infected by COVID-19.

The Deputy Prime Minister that the Senate should be fumigated every time Senators leave the house so that it can always stay clean and risks of the furniture carrying COVID-19 be reduced.
