Mumbai: Bollywood singer Kanika Kapoor has tested positive for Coronavirus for the fourth consecutive time, causing considerable concern to her family. Kanika, who was hospitalised on March 20 after she tested positive for Coronavirus, had returned form London on March 9 and then travelled to Kanpur and Lucknow and during her stay she developed cough and fever.
After she tested positive, she was slammed by the media for attending parties and spreading the virus though none of those who came into contact with her tested positive.
Kanika, who is presently admitted to the Sanjay Gandhi Post Graduate Institute of Medical Sciences (SGPGIMS) in Lucknow, was also criticised by the hospital administration for her ‘starry behaviour’.
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.
One of her family member who did not wish to be named, said, “We are now worried over the test reports. It seems that Kanika is not responding to treatment and in this lockdown, we cannot even airlift her for advanced treatment. We can only pray for her recovery.”
Doctors at the SGPGIMS, however, said that the singer’s condition was stable. Kanika Kapoor married to Raj Chandok, an NRI businessman, in 1997 and moved to London with her husband, with whom she had three children. She separated from her husband in 2012 and moved back to her parents home in Lucknow. The couple divorced in 2012.
The total number of novel coronavirus cases in India rose to more than 900 on Sunday, including 25 deaths.
