Kanika Kapoor has undergone the Coronavirus test for the third time. The singer, was tested positive for the virus last week, took the test for the third time and the results haven't changed. Kanika has been admitted to Sanjay Gandhi Post Graduate Institute of Medical Sciences (SGPGIMS) in Lucknow. While the singer continues to get treatment for Covid-19, an India TV report reveals the singer's friend has been tested negative. The friend Ojas Desai, who was missing for a few days now, stayed with the Baby Doll crooner at the Hotel Taj for two days. 

He issued a statement confirming that he had got himself tested at the Kasturba Hospital for Infectious Diseases at Mumbai. The test results were negative. He shared the results on social media. The singer had come in contact with 162 people soon after she returned from London. All the people who the singer interacted with during her stay in Lucknow have been tested negative for the virus. 

The test results came as a huge relief for she had met a number of politicians, businessmen and socialites. The singer had previously denied claims that she attended a party. However, her father had confirmed she did meet a group of people. The singer crossed paths with Former Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje, and her son, BJP MP Dushyant Singh at the party. The news of the duo meeting the infected Kanika caused panic for President Ram Nath Kovind had met Singh soon after the party. 

Meanwhile, recent reports reveal three FIRs have been registered against Kanika. She has been booked under Sections 188 (disobedience of an order duly promulgated by a public servant), 269 (negligently acting in a way likely to spread the infection of any disease dangerous to life), and 270 (malignant act likely to spread the infection of any disease dangerous to life) of the Indian Penal Code. 

Last Friday, rumours spread like wildfire on social media hinting that Kanika is the first Bollywood celeb to have contracted the virus in India. Soon enough, the actress took to her Instagram and issued a statement to confirm she has Coronavirus. ". 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," she assured.

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

Why are we wasting kits on her , when there are not plenty of kits available????

Y are they wasting testing kits on her? If she has the virus, just treat her n keep her under observation in an isolated room. Just a waste of testing kits which are already in short supply.

exactly !

wasting time

Don’t like her or hypocrite bollywood’s privileged attitude and negligence but hope she gets cured for her kid’s sake.
