Veteran actress Shobana has become the latest celebrity to contract the COVID-19 Omicron virus. She noted that her symptoms have been mild and tolerable, given that she took both doses of vaccination.

Shobana took to her Instagram handle and penned a long note as she informed her fans about being tested positive for Coronavirus. The actress wrote, "When the world sleeps magically ! I have contracted Omicron despite taking precautions. My symptoms were joint pains, chills and a scratchy throat which was followed by a slightly sore throat -This was only on the first day ! And every day my symptoms reduce greatly. I’m glad I took both my vaccines as I believe that it prevents the disease from progressing by 85 percent . I urge everyone else to do the same if you haven’t done so already. I hope and pray that this variant marks the end of the pandemic."

In the last couple of weeks, many actors tested positive for COVID-19 including Priyadarshan, Mahesh Babu, S Thaman, Sherin, Arun Vijay along with others. Last month actors Kamal Haasan, Vadivelu and Vikram were also affected by the virus.
