Baby Doll fame Kanika Kapoor has tested positive for novel coronavirus, becoming the first Bollywood celebrity in the country to be infected by the disease. The singer’s throat and nasal swab samples were reportedly collected at the Microbiology lab of a city hospital in Lucknow.

Reports claimed that the singer landed in Lucknow from the United Kingdom some days back and was admitted to the hospital after she showed signs of flu.

Many people burst out on her on social media citing that she evaded thermal screening at the airport and that later she stayed in a five-star hotel and attended the party with at least 100 people present.

As the matter spread like wildfire and people demanded action against her, Kanika took to Instagram and released a statement saying she’s under complete quarantine and medical care while clarifying that she developed signs of flu only in the last four days.

For the past four days, I have had signs of flu. I got myself tested and it came positive for Covid-19. My family and I are in complete quarantine now and following medical advice on how to move forward. The contact mapping of people I have been in touch with is underway as well. I was scanned at the airport as per normal procedure 10 days ago when I came back home, the symptoms have developed only four days ago. At this stage, she would like to urge people to practice self-isolation and get tested if one has the signs. I am feeling ok, like normal flu and a mild fever, however, we need to be sensible citizens at this time and think of all around us. We can get through this without panic only if we listen to the experts and our local, state and central government directives. Wishing everyone good health – Kanika said in her statement.
