TV actress Sara Khan tests COVID-19 positive, to remain home-quarantined


Television actress Sara Khan has tested positive for the novel Coronavirus. The actress who recently replaced Seema Mishra as Paulomi Devi in Santoshi Maa Sunaye Vrat Kathayein, informed her fans via an Instagram post. Sara is asymptomatic and will remain home quarantined till she recovers. Soon after sharing the note, Sara spoke to a leading daily and said she was suffering from mild fever last week. After losing the sense of taste and smell, she went for a test. Sara further mentioned that she has cancelled all her shoots including her travel to Kashmir which will now be rescheduled. 

"I’ve only been to the set of my TV show for the shoot, and nowhere else. I don’t even have any house help. So, I might have either got it on the set, or maybe at a toll plaza. I was suffering from mild fever since last Thursday, along with a loss of sense of taste and smell, but didn’t think that it could be COVID. I had stopped going for the shoot after that. I felt uneasy and unwell, so I underwent a COVID-19 test yesterday and today, the reports said that I had tested positive. I have cancelled all the shoots until I test negative. I was supposed to leave for Kashmir for a shoot on September 17, which will now have to be rescheduled. I am waiting to get well soon and bounce back to work," Sara told.

Sara is living with her parents in Mumbai and they will also undergo a test. "Yes, since I live with my mom and dad, they’re going to get tested, too. I am asymptomatic, but asymptomatic or symptomatic, one has to maintain good hygiene and keep safe distance from everyone in both cases. I’d advise everyone, who came in close proximity with me, to get themselves tested," she added.

In her Instagram post, Sara wrote, "Unfortunately, today I have tested positive for coronavirus!! Authorities and doctors instructed to quarantine at home!! Feeling fine and wishing for the speedy recovery"
