A couple of weeks ago three house helps from Janhvi Kapoor's residence tested positive for COVID-19. Janhvi had shared her father's statement on social media, “Yes, the house help was tested positive and we are taking all the precautionary measures though myself, my children and the other staff at home, none of us are showing any symptoms as of now. BMC and the government authorities have been prompt and very helpful. We will do as told by them."
The number of confirmed COVID-19 cases in India has reached 139K. Out of these, 50,231 people in Maharashtra have been tested positive for coronavirus. A few weeks ago Maharashtra government decided to extend the lockdown in hotspot areas like Mumbai, Pune, Malegaon, Aurangabad and Solapur until May 31.
Well, we hope that Johars remain safe and healthy.
