Transparent barriers have been installed between the seats of Members of Parliament (MPs) to separate them and reduce the risk of Covid-19 infection in the august house, said Datuk Seri Azalina Othman Said.

The Deputy Dewan Rakyat Speaker said that on Monday, adding that with the installation of the barriers, some of the MPs who previously occupied seats of Parliament officers on the left side of the hall were now able to sit again in the main block of the Dewan Rakyat.

Azalina also reminded the MPs to wear the face mask at all times in the Dewan Rakyat as they were only allowed to remove it when they want to speak.
