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. Contact mapping of people I have been in touch with is underway aswell. I was scanned at the airport as per normal procedure 10days 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 a 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. Wishing everyone good health. Jai Hind ! Take care, KK

Addressing the speculations that Kanika ran away from the airport, Indeep Bakshi said that one cannot leave the airport even if one proof doesn’t match. Then, how can an individual who tests positive for COVID-19 run away?! The Saturday Saturday singer reiterated that Kanika will be punished if she has broken a law but one should not say negative things about someone who is unwell.
