An employee of the Maruti Suzuki India Ltd (MSIL) at Manesar plant, has tested positive for coronavirus, an official spokesman of the company said.

He last worked at the plant on May 15 after which his residence came into a containment zone and he did not join work thereafter.

He tested positive for the COVID-19 on May 22.

The Company has informed the district administration about the employee who has since been admitted to a hospital and his condition is said to stable.

"We are providing all medical help and assistance to him as per government guidelines," the spokesperson said.

"There may be a possibility of a second case of infection that has just been reported. More information is being sought", he said.

"The company has identified other employees who are working in his team. All of them have been asked to stay at home quarantine," the MSIL official said.

"We have undertaken a contact tracing exercise and out of abundant caution all employees who possibly could have come in contact have been advised to stay in home isolation. The company has in place a robust and carefully designed Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) for maximum safety against infection spread at the workplace and transit, which goes well beyond compliance requirement. In addition, there is also a COVID-19 Task Force that closely monitors adherence to the SOP in the Company," he said.

"There is no impact on the business operations of the company," he added.
