National Assembly : Special Measures To Combat Coronavirus

Social distancing respected and hygienic rules obligatory.

The National  Assembly of Cameroon  has stepped up  measures to fighting against  the Coronavirus pandemic  whose tested positive cases  continue  to rise in the country.
After the entire House Chamber and the whole premises  were disinfected on Thursday, April 2, 2020 other drastic  measures went into force the following day, April 3, 2020 during a plenary sitting dedicated to the scrutiny and adoption of bills.  Authorities of the National Assembly  have decided  that in order to respect the social distancing measure, Members of the House have been divided into three groups of not more than 50 MPs. According to close sources  at the Department of Legislative Affairs, the groups would  alternate in the attendance of plenary sittings. This is exactly what obtained  during  Friday’s plenary.  Most of the MPs starting with the House Speaker, Hon. Cavaye Yeguie Djibril wore masks  during the plenary.
Another key innovation is that anytime a speaker finishes from the rostrum, it is immediately disinfected before another one comes up. As it is the case in almost all public, private structures and business places now, the washing of hands using soap and hand sanitizers  is strictly  followed in the National Assembly.  At the main entrance there are two containers for the washing of hands. As one steps into the security office, health officers therein conduct the temperature tests and the guest  sanitises his hands. The same procedure is followed  at the entrance into the lobby of the House Chamber and offices
