The office building of music and film production house T-Series, owned by Bhushan Kumar, has been sealed by the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) after a caretaker tested positive for COVID-19.
According to a T-Series spokesperson, there were caretakers who would work and stay at the office premises in Andheri, which is now sealed to contain the spread of Coronavirus.
“Some of them are migrants who couldn’t go back. There are rooms, kitchen and all facilities for them at the office building. But one of them got tested positive for COVID-19. There are two-three people who are also getting tested, but their reports are pending. For safety reasons, the BMC has sealed the office. It was anyway shut for employees since March 15,” a spokesperson from T-Series told PTI.
“Yes we also came to know about this and immediately we took the action. T-Series has followed the lockdown from day Oone as law-abiding citizens. There are some in-house security staff and helper who permanently stays in the office and due to the immediate lockdown they couldn’t travel to their hometown so they continued saying in the office premise. Unfortunately three of them developed some symptoms and were taken for the test. We as an organisation will definitely take care of them and take further necessary precautions,” the spokesperson added.
Earlier, Oberoi Springs, a posh residential complex in Mumbai, which is home to celebrities like Vicky Kaushal, Rajkummar Rao and Chitrangada Singh, was also temporarily sealed after an inmate had tested positive for COVID-19 in one of the blocks.
The residential area has now been de-contained. We hope the same happens for the T-Series building as well and pray that the afflicted patients makes a full recovery.
