The latest celebrity to have tested positive for coronavirus is Sara Khan, best known for her role in ‘Sapna Babul Ka Bidaai’. The actress, currently seen as the new Paulomi Devi (she has replaced Seema Mishra) in ‘Santoshi Maa Sunaye Vrat Kathayein’, took to Instagram to share the news with her followers. She wrote, ‘Unfortunately, today I have tested positive for coronavirus!! Authorities and doctors instructed to quarantine at home!! Feeling fine and wishing for the speedy recovery.’ (sic)

In an exclusive conversation with BT, Sara said, “I’ve only been to the set of my TV show for the shoot, and nowhere else. I don’t even have any house help. So, I might have either got it on the set, or maybe at a toll plaza. I was suffering from mild fever since last Thursday, along with a loss of sense of taste and smell, but didn’t think that it could be COVID. I had stopped going for the shoot after that. I felt uneasy and unwell, so I underwent a COVID-19 test yesterday and today, the reports said that I had tested positive. I have cancelled all the shoots until I test negative. I was supposed to leave for Kashmir for a shoot on September 17, which will now have to be rescheduled. I am waiting to get well soon and bounce back to work.”

Since Sara’s parents live with her, they will also be undergoing a test. She said, “Yes, since I live with my mom and dad, they’re going to get tested, too. I am asymptomatic, but asymptomatic or symptomatic, one has to maintain good hygiene and keep safe distance from everyone in both cases. I’d advise everyone, who came in close proximity with me, to get themselves tested.”

For now, the actor is taking good care of herself. She shared, “I’ve always taken good care of my health, and ensured that I took my Vitamin C, B and E tablets regularly. I also eat healthy to keep my immune system strong. And just as my doctors advised, I’m using home remedies like haldi doodh, and eating loads of citrus fruits and taking my antibiotics on time.”

She added, “I’m following home remedies because they work best and also doing a lot of steam inhalation. Coronavirus can happen to anyone, so, it’s really important to maintain good health overall. That way, when it hits you, you have an immune system that is strong enough to fight the virus.”
