No world, we have not had enough of Kanika Kapoor and COVID 19 news updates just yet.
Not so long ago, we heard the news of the Baby Doll singer Kanika Kapoor being tested positive for coronavirus. She was then admitted to a hospital in Lucknow for treatment and isolation. But looks like the star has not learned from her mistakes and is still not taking the pandemic seriously.
Gluten-free diet, AC, 5-star service not enough for Kanika Kapoor
We all have been seeing the visuals that have been coming from around the world. How nurses in Italy, Spain, and Britain are breaking down due to non-stop shifts, how hospitals are running out of beds for COVID 19 positive patients and how the entire world is in distress. The coronavirus cases in India too are on an alarming rise and amidst this health emergency like situation, Kanika Kapoor has refused to corporate!
A public statement made by the Director of Sanjay Gandhi Postgraduate Institute of Medical Sciences (PGIMS) revealed that the hospital is trying its best to give Kanika Kapoor the most advanced and professional care services but are still failing to match her expectations. He said, “She is being provided Gluten Free Diet from the Hospital Kitchen. The facility provided to her is an isolated room with a toilet, patient-bed, and a television. The ventilation of her room is air-conditioned with a separate Air Handling Unit (AHU) for the Covid-19 unit. Utmost care is being taken but she must first start behaving as a patient and not a star.” It is upsetting to hear that a star of this level is neglecting the gravity of the situation and is unable to move beyond her stardom for the greater good.
A lie about travel history and flouting isolation conventions weren’t enough either!
Kanika Kapoor is the first Bollywood celebrity to have tested positive with COVID 19. But what is more upsetting is that she had hidden her travel history form the United Kingdom when she landed in India on 15th March and had attended a VIP party with close to 100 people after her arrival. This negligence has caused major panic and fear in the country. The VIPs at the party include some senior-level political leaders like Vasundhara Raje, Dushyant Singh, Anupriya Patel, and Derek O’Brien.
All said and done, COVID 19 is not an easy thing to deal with. Although doctors assure that the death rate is less than 5%, the mental stress caused by the pandemic is immense. We hope Kanika Kapoor recovers soon!
