India's Silicon Valley Puts The Work On Hold Due To H1N1 Virus

The temporary closing follows two SAP employees being exposed to the H1N1 virus.

After struggling with the fatal effect of the novel coronavirus outbreak, India suddenly has to face another battle with H1N1 influenza recently happening in Bengaluru, the country's Silicon Valley. The Indian branch of German-based software company SAP on Thursday announced that it has shut several offices in Bengaluru and Mumbai to put the risk on hold.

H1N1 1
SAP is discovering the reason for why these employees contracted H1N1 influenza.

The temporary closing follows two SAP employees being exposed to the H1N1 virus. Rather than only quarantining these patients, the company orders all of the others to not move to their workspaces and continue everything at home until further notice.

People began raising concerns over their health after RMZ, the operator of the business park in which SAP places its offices, spread an advisory to all tenants about SAP case. Other tenants include a bunch of big names not only in the tech industry but also in financial services, such as Shell Technologies, Danske IT, Honeywell, Accenture, ANZ, Capgemini, Morgan Stanley, and more.

These companies reportedly asked their employees to stay at home and have the work done for the next three days. However, the order doesn’t seem to have any significant impact as they’re actually holidays for most people.

H1N1 2
Authorities said people should keep calm.

Despite that, officials from the health department of Karnataka stated that such a response was overreacted. According to authorities, it’s not bad to take precautions as the H1N1 scare follows the coronavirus fear, but they shouldn’t panic at all.

In the meantime, SAP is discovering the reason for why these employees contracted H1N1 influenza while suggesting others who see any symptoms of fever, cough, and cold to have early medical consultations.
