National Assembly temporarily shuts down due to COVID-19 Updated: 2020-02-24 16:05:41 KST

The coronavirus outbreak is also disrupting the South Korean parliament.
The National Assembly announced that it will close the doors of its main building and the members' office building from 6 PM today until 9 AM Wednesday to disinfect the area.
Announcing the shutdown, the first-ever in South Korea's parliament history, National Assembly spokesman Han Min-soo said the decision came after learning that someone infected with COVID-19 attended a parliamentary forum last Wednesday.
Due to this, a three-day interpellation session that was set to begin today has been postponed indefinitely.
Lawmakers were initially scheduled to ask questions this afternoon to government officials including Prime Minister Chung Se-kyun regarding political and national security issues.
