Venkaiah Naidu Tested Positive For Coronavirus
During the monsoon session of the parliament, 83 out of the 1500 employees of the Rajya Sabha Secretariat tested positive for the coronavirus. According to an official statement made at the end of the session, it is said that a testing camp was initially set up in the premises of the parliament on September 7 and the session began on September 14.
Also, we would like to tell you that the testing for the virus was made compulsory and mandatory for anyone who wishes to enter the building of the parliament during the session, including for the media personnel.
Well, this can be learned as a message for all the citizens of the country, that if the leaders of the country, who takes so much care of their health, hygiene and social distancing norms, and are well medicated, educated, and supported, can be tested positive for the virus, then why won’t you?
It’s time that all of us take a step further and take an oath to follow all the social distancing norms and wash our hands frequently. Also, sanitize the things you use daily as the virus can stay on surfaces of materials for a prolonged period of time. If Vankaiah Naidu can be exposed to the virus, so can you. Take care of yourself and your family.
