Actor-Comedian Vivekh has suffered a heart attack; the news was confirmed by the hospital’s PRO where he is undergoing his treatment. The actor is hospitalised in a private hospital in Chennai and is currently in ICU. As per news in the media, the hospital is yet to give out an official statement stating the reason behind the heart attack the actor suffered. So far no official statement from his team or his family has been issued updating his fans about his health.
Just a few days ago he was vaccinated for COVID-19 at Omandurar Hospital, when he urged people to come forward and fight this virus by getting vaccinated. As reported by The Indian Express, he said, “Both Covishield and Covaxin only provide safety to us. These vaccines may not prevent Covid but may reduce the severity of the infection.” He also touched upon the subject of following safety measures and why taking a vaccine is of utmost importance.
As reported in The News Minute.com, he said, “The public safety measures to keep ourselves safe (from coronavirus) is wearing masks, washing hands and maintaining adequate physical distancing. The medical way to protect ourselves is this vaccine. You might be taking Siddha medicines, Ayurvedic medicines, Vitamin-C, Zinc tablets etc. This is all fine. But these are added measures.”
He further added, “The vaccine is the only thing that can save your life. If you ask me if people who are vaccinated don’t get COVID-19, it is not like that. Even if COVID-19 hits you, there won’t be death.” ALSO READ: Hansal Mehta Urges Netizens To Help Him Get Through A Lab As His Wife Shows COVID-19 Symptoms; Tweets 'Need To Get Her Tested Urgently'
