This morning, reports emerged that Akshay Kumar has tested positive for Coronavirus. He was shooting at Madh Island for his next film Ram Setu. However, post his diagnosis, he has quarantined himself. Now, reports have emerged that 45 out of 100 junior artistes who were going to join the team of Ram Setu have tested positive for Coronavirus. The news has been revealed by FWICE (Federatioon of Western India Cine Employees) General Secretary Ashok Dubey.

To Times of India, Mr Ashok Dubey said, "Ram Setu has been taking full precautions. It is really unfortunate that 45 people from our Junior Artistes Association have tested positive. They have been quarantined." Akshay Kumar's production house Cape Good Films and Vikram Malhotra's Abundantia Entertainment seemed to have taken necessary precautions in the dreaded times of Coronavirus and got all the artistes tested before they joined the team. Out of 100 junior artistes who got tested, 45 have tested positive and have been given immediate medical help.

Talking about the safety norms followed by the producers of Ram Setu, a source revealed to the portal, "Every precautionary test is done a couple of days in advance. Those who don't clear the test are isolated and even paid by the 'Ram Setu' producers. This unit is so careful that even if a person is feeling low on a particular day, he/she is immediately isolated in the provisions that have been done in the vicinity of where the shoot is being conducted. You will find maximum number of PPE kits on the sets of Ram Setu. Lakhs of rupees have been sent on tests and isolations since Day 1."
