Ricardo Monreal, president of the Political Coordination Board (Jucopo) and parliamentary leader of Morena in the Senate, attended a test for covid-19 as part of the health measures to reduce the risk of contagion among legislators.
Behind the death of Morenoist senator Joel Molina due to covid-19 and the infections of other senators, the parliamentary leaders agreed to strengthen prevention measures and, starting this week, will be mandatory for legislators and the personnel accredit their negative result before entering the ordinary sessions in the Senate.
“Before each session, access will no longer be allowed, except for people who have their negative certificate; there will be no advisers, there will be no guests, only legislators. We will continue working, we will have sessions on Wednesday, Thursday and, if necessary, on Friday, “he said.
He dismissed that the senators who tested positive for COVID-19 at the weekend, including Joel Molina, were infected during the marathon session on Wednesday, where the extinction of 109 trusts public.
“I think most of them were (infected) before the session, because it cannot be done in three days. I have seen two senators, one from the PAN and the other from the Citizen Movement, but I feel it was before the session. I don’t want to speculate, but we will know tomorrow and we hope to have all the information, “he added.
