An employee from Pune who is working at Infosys is tested positive for the Corona Virus test. With this incident, Infosys is said to be working with health authorities on contact tracing.
Police have arrived at the site at Hinjewadi and Magarpatta Tech parks already twice last week. In these tech parks, IT and ITes companies co-exist and work together. Most of the employees are working from home but some are needed at Tech Park. They had to stay and work from the office.
After allowing its employees to work from home, Infosys has reported a positive case for Covid-19 on Sunday. This case was at Hinjewadi IT park phase-2. The previous week, an employee from Magarpatta tech park became suspect for the test and created panic across the tech park which led to the closing of the offices in that tech park. These two major tech parks in Pune employs about 5 lakh people.
Infosys is reportedly working on SDB 1, SBD 4 and FC 1 for fumigation and sanitization of the campus and its employees. The company statement said that Infosys has confirmed a positive case in one of its tech parks. They even asked their employees to maintain self-quarantine and monitor their health regularly.
While some of the companies are allowing their employees to work from home in the tech parks, some other companies are not allowing their employees to do so in IT parks located in Magarpatta, Hinjewadi, Yerwada, etc.
Mr.Pawanjeet Mane, President of Federation of IT employees of Pune has said that most of the IT companies are not being honest about how many numbers of employees are currently working at the campus and they are giving wrong stats to police and government authorities about this. He also said they reached out to the district collector and the police to make sure all the companies follow the guidelines set by the government.
