The Telegraph reported that Jamshdepur District Civil Surgeon Dr RN Jha revealed that around 46 foreigners entered Jamshedpur between December 5 and 8. All of them had checked in at Fortune Park Centre Point Hotel in Bistupur in Jamshedpur. Dr Jha while talking to The Telegraph Online said “Most of these international tourists hailing from countries like Philippines, Ghana, South Africa, New Zealand, and Zambia, were employees of an international firm and had come here for a contractual job at Tata Steel’s Pellet Plant. We got their swab test done at the Tata Main Hospital. Out of the 46 foreigners, 11 tested positive. After that we sealed the Fortune Centre Point hotel.”

The civil surgeon further added that after the foreign nationals tested positive, the health department decided to conduct a sample test for all the hotel staff. He said “Of the 29 hotel staffers that underwent the Covid test, one tested positive. As a precautionary measure, we have not just sealed the hotel but have also quarantined all the occupants including the hotel staff inside the hotel.”
