At least eight bakery workers in Srinagar have tested positive for the coronavirus, Deputy Commissioner of the district Aijaz Asad said on Tuesday.
Taking to his Twitter handle, Asad said, “DDMA Srinagar asked for Testing of all Bakery workers. Out of 99 lifted samples, 8 have tested positive on RTPCR. Mostly from renowned Bakery shops. Let’s stay indoors. #coronavirus has unique art of locating the right person.”
The tests were conducted ahead of the Eid even as the authorities announced some respite in restrictions on Tuesday.
