Three employees of Cadila Pharma, who were among the 30 who tested positive for Covid19, have succumbed to the illness. The company employs close to 400 people at its plant and offices in Dholka in Ahmedabad.
Earlier Cadila Pharmaceuticals had to shut down its manufacturing unit in Dholka in Ahmedabad after 26 employees of the plant tested positive for coronavirus. Sources had said that initially five employees had tested positive while 21 others tested positive later that week. The plant is located near Trasad road in Dholka.
The new 21 cases were those that had tested positive following contact tracing of earlier cases. Further testing had taken the total number of positive cases to 30. The affected employees had later been moved to Sola Civil Hospital. The local administration had then swung into action and shut down the site and quarantined 95 of the remaining employees.
