Palampur: 13 tea estate  workers test +ve

Palampur, May 28

As many as 13 migrant labourers of a local tea estate and their two children (aged one year and 10 years) have tested positive for Covid-19. They are living in sheds at Saliana village, 7 km from here.

Block Development Officer Rajeshwar Bhatia visited the place and advised the infected labourers to isolate themselves. The administration also provided them necessary medicines. The owner of the tea estate has taken the responsibility of following Covid protocol in the area.

The local authorities are worried over the spread of Covid in labour colonies.

There is no drinking water facility in these slums and labourers fetch water from nearby natural resources or public taps. — OC
