Tulip Diagnostic Private Limited, Verna and two other industrial units at the Cuncolim industrial estate have restarted their operations after proper sanitisation and following the SOP.
“Post-santisation, our units have started functioning from 24th July, 2020 with a new SOP for containment of the infection at the workplace,” Tulip company official said, on Saturday.
District Collector South Ajit Roy had ordered closure of five industrial units in South Goa for 14 days, in the beginning of the last month. Of the five, it is now learnt that three have completed the time duration of 14 days, and restarted the operations following the SOP.
Pradeep Costa, president of the Verna Industries Association said that “Tulip Diagnostics has taken all measures, and is operational since July 24. Moreover, having already paid a heavy price, Tulip has been very sensitive to the pandemic, and has donated an RT-PCR machine, which is now operational at South Goa District Hospital. This greatly helps us partner and share the government load, and also facilitates the industry in faster contact tracing and thus minimising community transmission.”
He further said that “the COVID-19 is an unseen enemy which we all have to fight collectively.”
