Bollywood singer Kanika Kapoor’s fifth sample test for COVID-19 has also come out to be positive. Sample tests are being carried out on the corona patients every 48 hours.
Kanika is presently admitted to the Sanjay Gandhi Post Graduate Institute of Medical Sciences (SGPGIMS).
The director of the institute, Dr RK Dhiman, said that her condition was stable and there was no cause for worry. “Kanika is doing well as also taking food on time,” he said, adding that the information circulated on social media regarding her deteriorating health is false and baseless.
Earlier, the doctors had said that she would be discharged only if two consecutive tests turned out to be negative for COVID-19.
After testing positive for COVID-19 for the fourth time on Sunday, Kanika put out an update about her health condition on Monday on Instagram. The Baby Doll singer informed her well wishers that she is keeping ‘fine’ and is not in the ICU. The singer also said that she misses her kids and family.
In a 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.
Meanwhile, all those who had interacted with Kanika during her stay in Lucknow earlier this month, have tested negative for coronavirus. A number of politicians, businessmen and socialites had attended the parties with the singer.
Kanika, who was hospitalised on 20 March, had returned from London on 9 March and then travelled to Kanpur and Lucknow.
As soon as she had revealed about her being diagnosed with coronavirus on social media, she was slammed for allegedly hiding her health condition and attending parties and mingling with people even though she showed symptoms like cough and fever.
She, however, claimed that she had not show any symptoms when she had attended parties. Kanika Kapoor eventually deleted the post where she had announced that she had tested positive for COVID-19.
The number of positive cases in India has crossed 1200 and the death toll stands at 32.
