Shrenu Parikh tested positive for COVID-19 after she resumed shooting in July. "Hey everyone have been away for a while but the bugger hasn’t spared me…was found COVID positive a few days ago, and I’m now recovering in the hospital! Keep me and my family in your prayers," the Ishqbaaz actress had written in her Instagram post.
Actress Mohena Kumari tested positive along with her entire family in June. She, however, had mild symptoms and recovered after a few weeks.
Even though the government has eased down the restrictions, we need to understand that the pandemic hasn't gone anywhere. The number of cases that have gone up in the past few days is proof that we can't afford to go lax on precautions. Step put only if it's absolutely necessary. Stay home, stay safe!
