402 Parliament Staff Members test Covid-19 positive

Ahead of the budget session of Parliament, more than 400 Parliament staff members tested positive for Covid-19, according to official sources.

The officials said 402 staff members were tested positive out of the 1,409 staff of Parliament for the virus from January 4 to 8 after which their samples were sent for genome sequencing to confirm the variant.

According to an internal message from the staff of Parliament, the staff are advised to follow the precautions as per the guidelines of the government. “There is a consolidated list of 200 Lok Sabha and 69 from Rajya Sabha and 133 allied staff who have tested positive, but we all need to take proper precautions,” an internal message read.

The above list does not include who were tested for Covid outside the Parliament premises. Several employees of both the Houses of the Parliament were put in isolation after they came into contact with their infected colleagues during work.
