Kanika Kapoor who recently visited the UK has been tested positive for Coronavirus. She returned from London on March 9, however, she tested positive only recently. During this period, she stayed with family and attended a few parties too. A party that was organised at Taj Hotel, Lucknow saw Kanika Kapoor in attendance. Now, the members who attended these parties are also being tested for Coronavirus as they came in contact with Kanika. Reportedly, a friend of the singer who was also at the Taj Hotel with her is missing.
As reported by News 18, a Mumbai-based man named Ojas Desai who left Taj Hotel on March 16 is untraceable. Chief medical officer (CMO) Dr Narendra Agarwal said that Lucknow police is trying to track him, however, they are unable to figure out about his whereabouts, says the report. Kanika has been quarantined in a hospital in Lucknow and hence she cannot be questioned right now, says the report.
At the party, former Chief Minister of Rajasthan, Vasundhara Raje too was present along with her son. As soon as she got to know about Kanika testing positive, she got the tests done and her reports have come out to be negative. On Twitter, she wrote, "After conducting a #Covid19 test, I’m happy to inform you that the results came back negative. However, as a preventive measure, my son and I will continue to be in isolation for 15 days."
Kanika is a lot in the news as she was accused of not following the Government's advisory and going under quarantine despite her travel history abroad. (Also Read: Kanika Kapoor Coronavirus Row: Mujhse Shaadi Karoge Contestant Defends Singer, ‘She Went To The Hospital On Her Own’)
