Patra placed six points in that brief period. He suggested to the Parliament that it should undertake steps taken by Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik in bringing about social distancing measures as well as dedicated sensitization session for all MLAs in Odisha.
He also suggested measures relating to sanitization of ATMs, increasing testing centers, providing more PP suits to doctors and screenings at domestic airport terminals (screenings are presently being done only at international terminals).
