COVID stirred Indian Parliament. The new wave also joined parliament while it is creating terror across the country. More than 400 staff and officers were tested positive during corona tests conducted by Parliament for days. Authorities said those infected with the virus would be quarantined at their home.
The spread of Covid around the world is growing rapidly. Rajya Sabha Chairman Venkaiah Naidu, who reviewed the situation in this regard, took a sensational decision. Authorities were ordered to take appropriate action to contain the virus. It was clarified that corona sanctions should be strictly enforced at the field level. Experts say Omicron is not as dangerous but vigilance is needed.
Venkaiah expressed concern over the spread of corona in the wake of budget meetings starting in the last week of this month. Divyangs and pregnant women were allowed to work from home. The Rajya Sabha Secretariat has made changes in times. It was decided to hold official meetings virtually. Rajya Sabha Secretariat said staff attendance had been halved.
Under new directives, officers below the rank of secretary or executive officer will have to perform 50 percent of their duties through work-from-home by January 31.
