COVID-19; MPs Will Have Sessions Once A Week
Following the increase of positive cases of coronavirus in Afghanistan, the Parliament Members at the Lower House on Sunday’s session decided to hold sessions once a week to prevent the spread of the novel pandemic.
The sessions are scheduled to take place on Wednesdays and MPs will work in parliamentary committees on other days of the week.
“The virus has spread to all across Afghanistan, even in parliament. The pandemic of the coronavirus has raised concerns,” Muhammad Din Hamdard, a Member of Parliament said.
However, the Upper House of Parliament is still working normally.
“At today’s session, we also asked the Senators to hold meetings once a week,” Senator Fawzia Sadat Amini added.
This comes as the total number of confirmed cases in Afghanistan reaches to 34.
