The US Embassy Spokesperson in New Delhi said they are working with the health authorities here to ensure the employee receives proper treatment.

"We are aware of reports of a COVID-19 case related to an Embassy New Delhi employee. We are working with Indian health authorities to ensure the employee receives proper treatment. Due to privacy concerns, we are not able to share additional information," the Embassy said.
