Bollywood singer Kanika Kapoor tested positive again in a second test for COVID-19 conducted on Monday. In the double-check, a high dose of coronavirus was found in her body. Kanika’s sample was tested again at the Sanjay Gandhi Post Graduate Institute of Medical Sciences after her family members raised questions about the initial test reports, according to report.
In a recent interview, Kanika Kapoor alleged that the hospital room in which she was kept was full of dust and mosquitoes. Dr. RK Dhiman has rubbished all the allegations by her and said that she has been getting the best of facilities and treatment by the hospital staff.
Kanika said, “I’ve been here since 11 am and all I’ve been given is a small bottle of water to drink. I’ve been asking these people to give me something to eat but I’ve only been given two small bananas and an orange that had flies on it. I am so hungry, I haven’t even taken the medicine that I was supposed to till now. I have fever, I’ve informed them, but no one has attended to me. The food I brought with me has been taken away. I can’t even eat anything that’s given to me as I am allergic to some foods. I am hungry, thirsty and I feel miserable here.”
Replying to her claims, doctor said, “The hospital staff at her disposal is for a four-hour shift during which they cannot eat or drink because they wear anti-infection equipment. Every four hours one team is “donned off” their gear and another shift takes over. The room is cleaned every four hours. Kanika’s claims are all baseless.”
Dr. Dhiman said, “Kanika has been provided with the best that is possible in a hospital. She must cooperate as a patient and not throw tantrums of a star in Lucknow.”
He added that Kapoor must cooperate with the hospital ‘to help herself’. “She is being provided Gluten-free diet from the hospital kitchen. The facility provided to her is an isolated room with a toilet, patient-bed, and a television. The ventilation of her room is air-conditioned with a AHU for the COVID-19 unit,” the director said.
Kanika has returned from London on 9 March and had partied with a number of politicians and celebrities rather than going in self-quarantine. As soon as the news broke, people who came in touch with the Baby Doll fame singer have been getting testes.
The total number of novel coronavirus cases in India rose to more than 450 on Monday, including nine deaths.
