Last month, popular Kannada and Tamil actress Samyuktha Hegde took to social media to seek help for her parents who tested positive for the novel coronavirus. Almost a month later, Samyuktha has now tested positive for Covid-19. As per her doctor's advice, she is currently under home quarantine.
Samyuktha took to Instagram stories and wrote, "Hello you guys, hope you all are doing well. I have tested positive for Covid 19 today. I'm in self-isolation and taking all the necessary measures as advised by my doctor. Take care of yourselves. Stay positive, test negative. Also, my parents are recovering really well. I'm thankful for the universe that I got it after they were nursed back to good health. And I'm super glad that the help requests in my DM have drastically come down and people are responding with thank you messages!!! Recovery news is literally the best news these days. Hopefully, there's actual change on the ground and I'm happy that people are able to receive the healthcare they require. Also, have to add BBMP people called me an hour after I got my report which was quite efficient compared to 25 days back when all of us tested and they called 11 days after to enquire about mom and dad (sic).”
