Mumbai civic body to test all guests who attended party after Kareena contracts Covid
The Mumbai civic body on Tuesday prepared a list of guests present at a party attended by actor Kareena Kapoor Khan, who has contracted COVID-19, and their immediate contacts for testing all of them, an official said.
The personalities have been also asked to remain isolated at home and avoid any exposure to other people until the RT-PCR results are out. We have to seal the building of Kareena Kapoor Khan, which has been a standard practice of the civic body, Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation's Additional Commissioner (western suburbs) Suresh Kakani said.
Khan had attended a party at the residence of filmmaker Karan Johar. As per BMC officials, four persons who attended the dinner party have so far tested positive for coronavirus.

We have so far tested 15 people. The details of their immediate contacts and others are being collected to carry out testing," Kakani said.
The city civic body on Monday said Khan and actor Amrita Arora had tested positive for the coronavirus and those who came in contact with them were traced and their tests conducted.
Later, Mumbai Mayor Kishori Pednekar said it is not right to be carefree when the pandemic has not ended. She said if people flout COVID-19 norms, why strict action should not be taken against them.
