BH CORRESPONDENT, New Delhi: Uttar Pradesh medical authorities have sent notice to over 1,000 companies in Goutam Buddha Nagar district to inform them about employees from abroad. Two schools in Noida schools were also shut following coronavirus fear, as India reported two new cases of COVID19 this week.
On Tuesday morning, a school in Noida was shut for next three days as the child of a Delhi man, who recently tested positive for the virus, study there. Another well-known school in the same area issued a notice saying it will remain shut for the next few days as a precautionary measure.
“It has been decided to close Shiv Nadar School until the 9th of March in order to sanitize our spaces and completely remove all scope for the further spread of this virus,” a school official statement read.
However, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Twitter asked people not to panic and take precautions.
