Singer Kanika Kapoor tests positive for coronavirus; says she was checked for a thermal test at airport

Lucknow: Bollywood singer Kanika Kapoor, who arrived here on a family visit, has tested positive for novel coronavirus (COVID-19). The singer had flown down to Lucknow from London a few days ago and had thrown a lavish party for her friends and family.

A large number of bureaucrats, politicians and socialites had attended the party, as per reports. The singer was staying in a posh apartment. Medical officials are now unsure how to quarantine the entire building where the singer stayed and also subject the guests at the party to tests.

“Some people have started approaching us for tests but we still do not know how to make the VIPs undergo tests,” said a doctor at the KGMU.

An ANI reports she is among the four people who have been tested positive for coronavirus in Uttar Pradesh on Friday.

The news comes after Game of Thrones star Indira Varma announced that she has tested positive for Covid-19. Lost actor Daniel Dae Kim has also announced he has been tested positive for the novel coronavirus and urged people to follow self-isolation guidelines with seriousness.

While the singer has claimed to have gotten checked for a thermal test at the airport, many are alleging on Twitter that she hid her travel history and avoided the screening at the airport.
