Kanika travelled to London lately and arrived in Lucknow last week. She also did not inform authorities about her travel history. Kanika hosted a lavish party for her friends and family at a five-star hotel in Lucknow after returning from London.
She mentioned on her Instagram Post
On her Instagram, Kanika wrote, “Hello everyone, For the past 4 days I have had signs of flu, I got myself tested and it came positive for COVID-19. My family and I are in complete quarantine now and following medical advice on how to move forward. The contact mapping of people I have been in touch with is underway as well.
I was scanned at the airport as per normal procedure 10 days ago when I came back home, the symptoms have developed only 4 days ago. At this stage, I would like to urge you all to practice self-isolation and get tested if you have the signs.
I am feeling ok, like the normal flu and a mild fever, however, we need to be sensible citizens at this time and think of all around us. We can get through this without panic only if we listen to the experts and our local, state and central government directives.” She ended the note “wishing everyone good health. Jai Hind! Take care”.
Her father Rajiv Kapoor told the media in an interview that, “After she started developing some symptoms similar to Covid19 she informed the chief medical officers and her samples were taken. Today she was confirmed positive. The team of doctors has taken her to Sanjay Gandhi Post Graduate Institute of Medical Sciences (SGPGI) and she has been kept in isolation.”
He further added, “She was a part of a function in Kanpur and two in the state capital. For the last two days, she got a fever with a running nose. The doctors are saying the intensity is low and she will recover soon. We all are taking full care and following what we are told.”
