The Company has informed the district administration about the employee who has since been admitted to a hospital and his condition is said to stable.

"We are providing all medical help and assistance to him as per government guidelines," the spokesperson said in a statement.

"There may be a possibility of a second case of infection that has just been reported. More information is being sought", the MSIL official said.

"The company has identified other employees who are working in his team. All of them have been asked to stay at home quarantine," he said.

The Manesar plant manufactures vehicles such as the Swift, DZire and Celerio.
