65 workers working at Murthal’s famous Sukhdev Dhaba in Sonipat have been found infected with the corona virus. All have been asked to stay quarantined in their homes as there are no symptoms, and as a precaution the dhaba has been closed for two days and is being sanitized.

Deputy Civil Surgeon and Rural Area Nodal Officer Dr. Geeta Dahiya said that on the instructions of SDM, the work of collecting samples of the staff and workers working on the dhaba was going on. On 31 August, the director of Sukhdev Dhaba told him that he had just invited some workers from outside as well. He also requested to take their samples.

Dahiya said that about 350 samples were taken at the dhaba in this way. Now 65 of these reports have come positive. The information has been given to the operator of Dhaba. Meanwhile, Dhaba operator Amrik Singh said that he had called about 100 workers from Bihar four days ago by bus. These workers used to work with them earlier and went to their house during lockdown. All were staying in the quarters adjoining the dhaba.

He said that those found positive had not yet started work on the dhaba. However, on Thursday afternoon, as a precaution, they have closed the dhaba for two days and started sanitizing it as a precaution.
