New Delhi (Sputnik): Coronavirus, also known as COVID-19, has infected over 209,000 globally, including Hollywood stars Tom Hanks, his wife Rita Wilson, and actor Idris Elba. The pandemic has also taken the lives of over 8,500 people.
In a first, a Bollywood singer, Kanika Kapoor, has been tested positive for the COVID-19.
She reportedly had returned from London but concealed her travel history from authorities.
She even cancelled her festival of colours (Holi) plans that were scheduled to take place in Dubai.
After Kanika’s announcement on Instagram, Bollywood celebrities such as filmmaker Ekta Kapoor, singer Neha Kakkar, actress Karishma Tanna and Interior designer and ex-wife of actor Hrithik Roshan, Sussanne Khan sent their prayers for her speedy recovery.
While B-Town celebrities wished her luck, a certain section of social media users lashed out at the singer for “lying” at the airport about her travel history and suggested that beauty, money, or education don’t make one a compassionate and responsible citizen.
According to several tweets, Kanika hid the fact that she was infected with the virus and was reportedly staying in a lavish hotel in Lucknow after her return from London. In addition to this, she also hosted a dinner party with a huge gathering present.
She is known for her hit numbers including “Baby Doll” and “Desi Look”.
There are a total of 171 confirmed cases of coronavirus across India, with four people succumbing to the illness.
