Covid-19 Scare: \'Chaiwala\' creates panic in Thackeray\'s residence \'Matoshri\'-1Mumbai: Covid-19 has apparently reached the doorstep of Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray's private residence 'Matoshri' in Bandra.

A tea-vendor selling tea near the VVIP home has been found Covid-19 positive, sending the state and health officials in a tizzy.

As an immediate precaution, the BrihanMumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) on Monday sprayed disinfectants in the entire locality and surroundings.

The police, BMC and state health authorities have sealed off most parts of Kala Nagar where the CM's residence is located in Bandra east and now the tea-seller's contact tracking is underway.

Contacted for their reaction, top aides of the CM and his office declined to comment on the matter, nor was it clear whether Thackeray was present at his residence on Monday.
