The company said it follows the process of disinfecting the workplace on a daily basis along with special deep cleaning and disinfection of the affected work area. Post confirming the safety of the workplace and adhering to all the mandatory protocols, the company will continue its operations at its plant in Bidadi. All the SOPs on preventive measures to contain spread of Covid-19 infection are complied with, the automaker informed.

The automaker had reported a Covid-19 positive case just a day before on Friday (July 10). The concerned employee had last attended work on July 3. The company had also suspended work for a day on July 6 at its plant following the death of a Covid-19 infected employee.

TKM shared details about recovered employees, saying five out of the 14 previously infected employees had recovered and were now undergoing mandatory home quarantine of 14 days, post their discharge from the hospital.
