Kumkum Bhagya fame Shikha Singh contracts COVID-19; says she's pumping milk for her daughter Alayna
While COVID-19 continues to spread across the country, several celebrities have tested positive for the virus in the recent weeks. On Thursday, Kumkum Bhagya fame Shikha Singh took to her social media handle and informed even she has contracted the virus.
Shikha Singh, in a lengthy note, shared that the rest of her family members have tested negative and she has isolated herself from them. "One thing I feared the most during this covid outbreak was - “How will it affect Alayna” I was scared then, I’m scared now. I’m Covid+ve but thankfully everyone around in family is negative & I immediately isolated myself the moment I got fever & chills. It’s been 36hrs I haven’t seen or met @alaynasinghshah & my heart aches to hold her, smell her & be with her. But I know I have to control my emotions for her good & I shall. My struggles- obviously the body aches, headache, fever, cough & all on one side but the main struggle is cos i was still breastfeeding her, she misses that comfort of soothing while going to sleep. Kudos to @car_run & Puja(Al’s Didi) to handling her so well that she is just busy in her routine."
The popular TV actress further shared how she is pumping her milk for baby Alayna under doctor's supervision. Shikha wrote, "Im pumping my milk & giving that to her as advised by our doctor as my milk will contain anti bodies for her (not a carrier of covid). It’s a very tough time for us as a family but im still thankful to God that we are able to fight this out together & Alayna is safe. For me it’s more of a mental fight to be away from my baby for such a long time for the first time but we shall overcome this too! More strength to everyone around fighting covid & hope you all recover soon! Love & strength."
Recently, Ekta Kapoor, Arjun Bijlani, Kushagre Dua, Sharad Malhotra and several others were also tested positive for the virus.
