Mumbai: Acclaimed Bollywood star Hrithik Roshan has been tested positive for novel coronavirus, days after his ex-wife Sussanne Khan had posted on Instagram that she has contracted Omicron variant of COVID-19.

As per details, the actor immediately went to isolation at his Versova flat and quarantined himself for the next few days. 

However, the good news is that Hrithik has won his battle against COVID, and four days ago he got a negative test report. 

As per sources, Hrithik has recovered and is feeling much better now.  Although, his ex-spouse Sussane Khan is still infected and yesterday, she shared a post that read, “Omicron day 3…kicks day 2’s butt. Thank you god”.

Several actors were infected by the third wave of COVID-19 in India. Among them, include Arjun Kapoor and his sisters Anshula Kapoor, Janhvi Kapoor and Khushi Kapoor, John Abraham and Ekta Kapoor. India’s most loved female singer Lata Mangeshkar also tested positive for COVID-19.

The new Omicron variant of COVID has hit the country heavily since last month. 

The heavily mutated variant has become the most dominant strain in many of the states as the numbers of people reporting positive have surged across the country.

Hrithik Roshan last featured in action-thriller War alongside Tiger Shroff. 

The star is most likely to be seen in Vikram Vedha and Fighter. 

Reports quoting sources said that, Hrithik attended his ex-father-in-law actor Sanjay Khan birthday bash with Sussanne Khan earlier this month.

Job market recovery likely to slow in 2022 due to new Covid variants: ILO

There would be an even bigger deficit in working hours in 2022 than it previously estimated

Job market recovery likely to slow in 2022 due to new Covid variants: ILO

London: The United Nations’ International Labour Organization has warned that job market recovery from the Covid-19 pandemic looks set to slow in 2022.

In its 2022 World Employment and Social Outlook trends report, published Monday, the ILO forecast that the number of hours worked globally in 2022 would be 1.8% lower than in the fourth quarter of 2019, just before the onset of the pandemic.

The ILO forecast that there would be an even bigger deficit in working hours in 2022 than it previously estimated. It projected that the fall in global working hours this year would now be the equivalent of losing 52 million full-time jobs, nearly double the 26 million it previously forecast in May 2021.

Guy Ryder, ILO director-general, said in a press briefing ahead of the release of the report on Monday that this “downside readjustment is quite considerable.”

Ryder said that there were a number of reasons behind the expected slowdown in the labor market recovery, including the spread of new Covid variants, such as delta and omicron.

The ILO expected the labor market recovery to remain weak through 2023.

Ryder said that the far-reaching changes to economic and social behavior brought on by the Covid crisis had reduced the demand for, and the supply of, labor. He said that the ILO expected this trend to continue for “as long as the pandemic itself remains uncontrolled.”

The ILO estimated that global unemployment is expected to reach 207 million in 2022, versus 186 million reported in 2019.

Ryder said that to be “sustainable this recovery must be based on the principles of decent work, employment creation, labor rights, social protection and social dialogue.”

He referred to the guidance that was offered in the ILO’s call-to-action, that was adopted by its 187 member states in June 2021. For example, the ILO suggested that states should provide incentives to employers to retain workers, such as shorter working weeks.
