Prince Tuli, popular businessman and hotelier from Nagpur, who is currently in New York for handling his business interests in the US, has tested positive for the novel coronavirus. To take care of himself and curb the spread of the virus, Prince has now self-isolated himself.
Prince Tuli told Nation Next in a telephonic conversation from New York that more than his health, he was worried about the well-being of his family and friends back in Nagpur, especially his mother. “Apparently, people are not taking COVID-19 that seriously in India. Taking a cue from New York, where the situation is really bad, people there must do everything to control the virus from being spread. I would request everyone there to please follow social distancing and the lockdown. PM Modi is taking great initiatives to deal with this emergency situation; we must strengthen his hands by doing our bit to fight COVID-19,” said Prince.
Prince Tuli belongs to an affluent Nagpur family, which owns hotels and other businesses in the city.
