New Delhi: Ministers, as well as MPs, have to go through thermal scanning before getting entry into Parliament premises on Wednesday for the first time as a precautionary measure to contain the spread of novel coronavirus outbreak in the country. The thermal screening began in Parliament as the government decided to continue the House and complete the session till April 3, unlike various State Assemblies which have adjourned their proceedings in the wake of the spread of the deadly disease which has claimed over 7,000 lives across the world. Besides, small containers of hand sanitizers were also placed by the side of the security personnel, near the 12 entry gates. The visitor passes were also banned on Monday. (IANS)
