The sessions of the Parliament had resumed on Tuesday after a recess for holidays, always with security measures, which today were redoubled and it was agreed that the session would last three hours, so as not to expose the 128 deputies in the session hall, opposition deputy Ligia Ramos, who is a doctor by profession, told reporters.

He added that tomorrow’s session, Thursday, has been suspended so that employees and deputies of Parliament can be tested to know if they are infected or not with covid-19.
