Actor Anupam Kher's family tested positive for coronavirus including her mother. Anupam shared this sad news with his friends and well-wishers on social media that his brother, sister-in-law, and his niece also tested COVID positive with mild symptoms and have been admitted to the Kokilaben hospital.
The actor urged all his fans to take care of themselves and get their old parents tested even if they have mild symptoms. The actor wrote on Instagram, ''COVID and my family ,I would like to inform friends, well-wishers, and everyone else that I had taken my mother for a check-up yesterday, as she had been experiencing loss of appetite. On doctor's recommendation, we took her for CT Scan to rule out any medical issue. Upon testing, she was found mildly Covid +. Owing to her age, we have admitted her into Kokilaben Hospital. She is doing fine. Three other members ( my brother, his wife and my niece) have also tested mildly positive.I got myself tested as well and I have tested negative. The family has self-quarantined themselves and we have informed the BMC. I would like to reach out to everyone with aged parents - please get your parents tested even if they show the slightest of symptoms. Despite the extreme amount of carefulness displayed by my brother and his family over the last few months, they still tested positive. So I urge everyone to take this seriously and understand that no amount of safety measures are enough. Friends, don't let your guards down. Let's be vigilant, let's be aware and let's fight the bad times together. 🙏🙏#stayhome #staysafe #DulariWillStillRock @rajukherofficial @kherreema @vrindakher''
