Wow! Must say that fake news spreads quicker than any virus. People, pls don’t spread panic. There’s NO ‘Delta Variant’ in my building society. Just one COVID+ case & the patient is recuperating at Breach Candy hospital. The others are currently negative & self quarantined.— Suniel Shetty (@SunielVShetty) July 12, 2021
Suniel Shetty has also said that the news of the entire building being sealed and the cases of Delta variants is wrong. The actor has made a tweet in this regard, in which he told that the Delta variant has not been found in his building. He said that only one Covid-19 case has been found in the building. It must be noted that Suniel and his family are safe.
