5 officials of ED tests positive for COVID-19


Headquarters of the Enforcement Directorate (ED) has been sealed after five employees, including a special director rank officer, tested positive for COVID-19. Media reports said that two of the five who tested positive are contractual employees.

The infection came to light after section-testing was carried out at the agency’s headquarters in the wake of COVID-19 cases being reported from other floors of the Lok Nayak Bhawan in Khan Market, where the ED office is located, the officials said on Saturday. Officials were quoted by the media as stating that all the employees were asymptomatic and all have been put under isolation. Those who came in touch with them have been quarantined.

The office of the agency is sanitised twice a week and all posts are sanitized before handed over to respective persons. Last month, too, an ED employee had tested positive for COVID-19.
