Last week, veteran actor Kiran Kumar revealed that he has been tested positive for coronavirus. Kiran found this out when he visited the hospital for minor medical procedure although he was not showing any symptoms. The actor was under home quarantine for over ten days and has finally tested negative for coronavirus in his third test.
Kiran Kumar has revealed that his third coronavirus test has come negative, but his family is still under isolation. The actor revealed that he spent his days doing meditation, watching OTT content and reading books. Kiran also advised that everyone needs to stay positive during this time. The actor has released an official statement to update everyone about the status of his health.
Speaking to India TV, Kiran Kumar said, “It’s safe to say that things feel more than a little surreal at the moment. Never in our wildest dreams could we have imagined a dystopia like this would be our everyday reality. But it is. A few weeks ago, I had to undergo a routine medical procedure for which, under the government’s guideline at the time, a COVID 19 test was mandatory. My daughter accompanied me for the testing and we joked and laughed and generally remained upbeat, certain that this was just a formality and we would get on with our normal lives soon enough. The test results came back positive”.
Kiran Kumar added – ”Within the hour, we cordoned off a floor at home and turned it into an isolation zone. The amazing doctors at Hinduja Khar and Lilavati armed us with enough information to ensure panic would not set in. We informed the BMC of my status and amped up everyone’s vitamin intake. Today after being retested for Covid19, I am happy to say that I have tested negative. My family is still following strict home isolation. I was totally asymptomatic and apart from the boredom that accompanies isolation had no other complaints. I am continuing to take this forced time out as an opportunity to introspect and focus on life’s smaller pleasures”.
He further stated, “Corona felt like a looming, distant and scary phantom that we took every precaution to avoid and even then it found a way to enter what we thought was a completely sanitized space. Yet, here we are, dealing with it and getting on with our lives. It’s unfair to test people’s loyalty when your world feels like it’s caving in on you. It’s such a strange time that a seasonal sneeze or cough feels like something more sinister. As hard as it is for the people isolating, it’s tougher still for their caregivers”.
Kiran Kumar concluded his statement by throwing light on the positive side of the current situation – “Not only nature but relationships are blossoming too. People may physically be staying apart but are emotionally and mentally getting closer to loved ones. We’re all becoming cooks and hobbyists or just taking this time to decompress and be. Maybe this is the leveling up process we needed for the dawn of a new World and I for one am looking forward to waking up to it. Love and Light, Kiran.”
Apart from Kiran Kumar, other Bollywood celebrities like Kanika Kapoor, Zoa Morani and Purab Kohli have recovered from coronavirus.
