But the way it’s spreading around… I was shooting, so one is bound to come in contact with a Covid 19 positive person. I got it, then I was admitted in the hospital. Before that temperature had been high, I was imagining all sorts of things, imagination is the worst. As soon as I entered the hospital, my oxygen saturation level came to normal,” she tells us.
