Hello everyone, For the past 4 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. Contact mapping of people I have been in touch with is underway aswell. I was scanned at the airport as per normal procedure 10days ago when I came back home, the symptoms have developed only 4 days ago. At this stage I would like to urge you all to practice self isolation and get tested if you have the signs. I am feeling ok, like a 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. Jai Hind ! Take care, KK

“Mitron, we are screening everybody since Mid-Jan”
But #KanikaKapoor landed a few days ago, from a country with CoViD cases & escaped quarantine!
She then attended parties with MPs, who then went to Parliament & Rashtrapati Bhavan
Shouldn’t Modi self-Quarantine now?🙄

#kanikakapoor episode just shows that Stardom & Money and privilege doesn’t guarantee minimum common sense. Their irresponsible behaviour can upset the fight against #coronavirus which till date has been reasonably contained in India pic.twitter.com/CpD3yozpjh
