Manikarnika Actress Ankita Lokhande’s building has been sealed post a COVID-19 positive case has been found at the residential apartment. Along with her, actors like Ashita Dhawan-Shailesh Gulabani, Natasha Sharma-Aditya Redij and Mishkat Verma also live at the same apartment. A person who returned from Spain last month recently showed symptoms and upon testing, turned out to be infected with the coronavirus.
For the unversed, Ankita Lokhande along with the aforesaid mentioned actors live in an apartment complex in Malad. The infected man upon his return from Spain was tested negative at the airport, but only showed symptoms on 12th day. Post his tests on 26th March, new results turned out to be positive and soon measures like sealing the place were taken to curb the spreading of the virus.
In a conversation with HT, Ashita Dhawan confirmed the news as, “Yes, a resident in my wing tested positive and is currently in a quarantine facility. I am all praise for the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) and the Mumbai Police. The BMC officials have been extremely helpful. Earlier today, my mother-in-law exhausted her medicines and the medical stores close by didn’t have the stock. So, one BMC official collected a list of medicines from every flat and bought them for us. They have been keeping a close watch on everyone to ensure that we are safe. Of course, these are tough times for all of us, but we will do whatever it takes to ensure everyone’s safety. We have been asked to maintain no contact with outsiders. We are also following the WHO guidelines to keep the deadly virus at bay.”
COVID-19 has been spreading at a high rate in India currently. Currently, there remain 3671 cases, amongst which 3289 are active, 283 have recovered and 99 people have lost their lives.
