Bollywood producer Boney Kapoor, through a statement, has informed that his house help recently tested positive for coronavirus. Kapoor, who stays with his daughters Jahnvi and Khushi at Green Acres, Lokhdanwala in Mumbai, has said that the domestic help has been in isolation since May 16.
The statement read:
“I would like to inform you that our house staff, Charan Sahu aged 23 years, has tested positive for COVID-19. He was unwell on Saturday evening, was sent for tests and kept in isolation. After receiving the test report, our housing society authorities were informed and then accordingly the BMC, who immediately started the process of getting him into a quarantine centre.
My children, our other staff at home and I, are all fine and none of us are showing any symptoms. In fact, we haven’t left our home since the lockdown started. All of us will be in self-quarantine for the next 14 days. We shall be diligently following the instructions and advice given to us by the BMC as well as their medical team. We are thankful to the Government of Maharashtra and the BMC for their swift response.
I am sharing this information because it is important not to feed rumours and panic. We will take all precautions as required. We are sure that Charan will recover and be back at home with us soon.”
