Speaker of the National Assembly, Manzoor Nadir has tested positive once again for the coronavirus and will be in isolation for the next 14 days.
Speaking to the Village Voice News on Tuesday, Public Relations Officer (PRO) of the Parliament Office, Yannick December confirmed that the Speaker had posted this to his Whatsapp status.
“COVID has swept through the family, the household. I will be isolating for 14 days…seems re-infection can happen after two months,” Nadir posted. December added that, at a recent Sitting of the National Assembly, the Speaker did note that he was experiencing flu-like symptoms.
Nadir last tested positive for COVID-19 in early September noting then that he was asymptomatic. He later presided over the 2020 Budget via Zoom. Not long after, it was noted that some 17 Parliament staff also tested positive for the virus.
