Singer Kanika Kapoor has been undergoing treatment for the coronavirus in Lucknow and was once again the target of trolls after Prince Charles tested positive for the virus on Wednesday. Soon after, a picture of them together at an event went viral as trolls blamed the singer for passing on the virus to the prince. However, this isn’t true as the picture, according to the soruces, is from the royal event held in 2015.
The singer had recently returned from London on March 9 and revealed that she started showing symptoms of the deadly disease four days before she tested positive on March 20. On the other hand, Britain’s Prince Charles has been found positive for coronavirus as well.
Kanika Kapoor has been ruling the headlines as she tested positive for coronavirus for the third time on Wednesday. She is currently admitted at Sanjay Gandhi Postgraduate Institute of Medical Sciences in Lucknow.
11 of the 56 people who had come in close contact with Kanika at a party in Kanpur days before the Bollywood singer tested positive for the novel coronavirus were found to be not infected by the virus, a senior official said. Kanpur District Magistrate Brahma Deo Ram Tiwari said the 56 people had attended a “house warming party” hosted by her maternal uncle Vipul Tandon on March 13.
One of the viral pictures of Kanika, in an orange dress, chatting with Prince Charles, is from an event the Elephant Family charity ‘Travels to my Elephants’ hosted by Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, in 2015. However, trolls went on to criticise Kanika. While it takes 14 days for the symptoms to show, it’s impossible the singer must have infected him several years ago, much before the coronavirus came into existence.
As soon as the news about Prince Charles testing positive broke the internet, fans were worried about the Queen. The royal spokespersons from Buckingham Palace, on Wednesday, said “Her Majesty The Queen remains in good health. The Queen last saw The Prince of Wales briefly on the morning of 12th March and is following all the appropriate advice with regard to her welfare.”
