While she was at the hospital, she told NewsMeter, “I can feel the panic around me, some people gleefully also writing my obituary, many spreading wrong info & I think that is why people are scared of self-disclosure. There is so much of unnecessary phobia around this. I think it is overrated and the medical fraternity is not helping either.”

His blood samples are sent to Pune virology centre. Apart from him, one from Rajasthan and Delhi are also tested, positive for the virus.
