Coronavirus hits industrial estates

GOA: After Covid-19 cases were detected in some units in the Verna and Cuncolim industrial estates, South Goa collector Ajit Roy on Thursday ordered closure of three industrial units – one at Verna, and two at Cuncolim – for 14 days in three separate orders.

The closure orders have been issued to Tulip Diagnostics located in the Verna induatrial estate , and Global Ispat Pvt Ltd and Indo Spirit Beverages Pvt Ltd, both located in the Cuncolim industrial estate, under provisions of the Disaster Management Act 2005. “In order to contain the spread of the virus among other employees at the employment/work place and at the time of travel from home to industry premises, it is expedient to order closure of the (industrial unit) for a period of 14 days,” the orders read.

All officials and employees of the three units have been directed to compulsorily remain under home quarantine for the two-week period. In case of contravention, action would be taken under Section 57 of the Disaster Management Act, 2005, the order stated.
