For the last couple of days, many celebrities took to social media to talk about their Covid diagnosis. Among them, Lakshmi Manchu tested positive for Covid-19 and is currently in home isolation. Lakshmi Manchu said that she could handle all her symptoms but the toughest part is isolation and not being able to hug her daughter, Vidya Nirvana.
In an interview with The Times of India, Lakshmi Manchu said, "Oh, it’s incredibly hard! I can handle body pains, what I can’t handle is being unable to hug Apple (her daughter Vidya Nirvana) and my pups Lola and Nawab. That’s been really tough. But I wish I had my daughter’s positive view on things because I seem to need more of a pep talk than she does. When I told her I tested positive she assured me I’ll be fine and asked me to rest up. That’s just what I’m doing right now. I think you can’t have too many feelings when it comes to COVID because the symptoms last longer than the virus. I am bracing myself for whatever is to come in the next couple of months and feeling secure in the knowledge that I am in the best of care. I’ve also been double vaccinated so I’m confident that nothing severe will happen to me. I’m in a good space mentally as well (sic)."
