India's is now officially the fastest-growing country in the whole world in terms of the coronavirus pandemic spread. Of course, this isn't a statistic that we need to be proud of, in fact be extremely worried. Every passing day, we also come across multiple cases where public figures are either diagnosed with COVID-19 or reside in places that are containment zones.
The latest in this brigade is the building where legendary singer Lata Mangeshkar resides.
The building has been sealed by the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) as a precautionary measure amid the coronavirus pandemic. The singer resides in Prabhukunj building at Peddar Road in South Mumbai. What however is good news that the singer herself and her family is safe. The Mangeshkar family issued a statement sayign that it has been sealed because the apartment houses several senior citizens.
“We have been inundated by calls all evening inquiring whether Prabhukunj is sealed. The Building Society and the BMC have sealed it from the onset of the epidemic as we have senior citizens at home and in the building and it is mandatory to take these precautions. Even our usual festive Ganesha celebrations was a simple familial one this time to co-operate and support social distancing,” the statement read.
Initially, there were reports about how some residents tested positive but the statement continued, “Please do not react to any hearsay on the health of our family members especially. We, as a building society in unison, are taking utmost caution, care and co-operating to ensure the well being and safety of all the senior citizens especially and all the other residing members as well. By God’s grace and the wishes of so many, the family is safe.”
We hope everyone stays safe and well indeed.
