Ministers were screened for coronavirus on Wednesday ahead of the Federal Executive Council meeting by the State House. Their body temperature was checked as they arrived at the Presidential Villa for the meeting about 10.23 am.
They were also given hand sanitisers to disinfect their hands. The ministers were screened twice. The first screening took place as they alighted from their cars and entered the main reception to Villa.
At the entrance to the Executive Council Chambers, another screening took place before they finally entered the venue for the commencement of proceedings. Permanent secretaries and other officials from Ministries, Departments, and Agencies, who came for the meeting, were also thoroughly screened.
