As per reports, at least 125 families living near Gate No 70 have been asked to remain in self-isolation following the incident, as per the guidelines of the Union Health Ministry. Also, 25 houses within the same block have been kept under strict quarantine.
The worker’s daughter-in-law’s mother had died of COVID-19 in her village recently and all the family members had attended her funeral.
The sanitization worker’s daughter-in-law has also tested positive on April 20th, 2020. However, the rest of the family members tested negative for COVID-19, that has claimed over 550 lives in India so far.
The sanitization worker and the rest of the family members have been sent to an isolation ward in a government hospital.
