Maini said he has not received any information about the workers returning to their homes and these are just baseless rumors. He has also appealed to the workers to keep doing their work smoothly and not to pay heed to rumors.

IMT Manesar Industrial Association secretary Manoj Tyagi, also said industrial units in Manesar are running regularly and there is no labour problem anywhere. Workers are coming to work regularly, he said. Tyagi also appealed to the workers not to pay heed to such rumors and continue with their work while focusing only on COVID appropriate behavior.

Deputy commissioner Garg said the situation of corona infection in Gurugram district is still under control and of course the number of corona patients has increased but most of the patients are of mild symptoms.

Only one to two per cent of the patients need to be admitted to the hospital.

So the people of the district should not panic but take necessary precautions.
