The ongoing revenue sharing formula in the senate exposed the senators to COVID-19 after they breached several COVID-19 containment measures.
The revenue sharing debate has elicited emotions and its debate went late into the night on Tuesday evening as senators looked to settle the sharing formula once and for all.
However the manner with which the debate was held exposed the senators to COVID-19 and we will be hoping that none of them has contracted the disease as it could spread to the other senators and by extension their families, friends and the people they will interact with.
First the senators shared microphones. Drops of saliva on the microphone could see he spread of the virus as droplets of saliva is the one of quickest way the virus spreads.
The senators were also seated close to each other and in the process failed to observe social distancing. Some senators wore no masks while others had theirs on the chin.
