MUMBAI: Jewelry designer Farah Khan Ali has revealed that a member of her in-house staff has been tested positive for the coronavirus.

In a Twitter post on Tuesday, Farah said the staff member was taken to a hospital post his COVID-19 diagnosis.

"COVID news spreads faster than the virus. An in-house staff of mine tested positive today and so am moving him to a facility. Have all tested all at home today as well and are going to be quarantined. Be safe yet strong. This too shall pass," she tweeted.

In a later post, Farah, who is the daughter of Bollywood veteran Sanjay Khan, praised the local municipal body, Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) and the team of doctors for the way they dealt with the patient.

"Have to say the @mybmc and their docs in Mumbai is amazing with dealing with COVID patients. The way they handled the situation and picked up my staff and took him to a facility was swift and timely. They showed kindness & humanity & treated him with dignity. Way to go @AUThackeray," she added.

Singer Kanika Kapoor was the first Bollywood personality to test positive for COVID-19.

Recently, Bollywood producer Karim Morani's daughters, Shaza and Zoa, were discharged from the hospital after testing negative for coronavirus.

Karim, who had also tested positive for COVID-19, is still under medical care.
