BREAKING: Three Workers From Phoenix Mall Chennai Tested Positive For COVID-19!

Anybody who visited the mall at between the given dates are advised to call helpline numbers if they develop any symptoms!

A 25-year-old woman working in the Lifestyle store in the Phoenix Market City Chennai was tested positive with the Corona Virus on the 27th of March. She is currently being treated under isolation at Ariyalur Government Hospital. A few days later on March 31, her coworker, a 28-year-old man (identified as patient 69), tested positive and was admitted to Thiruvannamalai Government Hospital.

In a quick interview with The News Minute, an official from Chennai’s Health Department explains that they have privately managed to trace all those who visited the store in the mall between March 10 and March 17 (when all malls were ordered to close down in the state). He said, “We did not have to broadcast a message since lakhs of people would have visited the mall during the said period and the message would only create unnecessary panic in the city. We contacted the store and retrieved contact details of all those who purchased in the store between the said period. We have reached out to about 3000 customers. In addition to it we are already following up with 360 employees of the store.”

Phoenix Mall is now being completely scrutinised by the Health Department. Public health authorities are now directly tracking all employees of the mall, instructing them to quarantine themselves immediately. Should they develop any symptoms, they have been asked to report themselves immediately using COVID-19 helplines.
