Exclusive: Zarina Wahab was put on oxygen in Lilavati Hospital; had COVID-19 – Times of India
The hospital authorities had put her on oxygen and she thankfully responded before the services of a ventilator may have been required. Zarina was wheeled in very quietly and it seems that her family had kept it under wraps barring few close friends and relatives.
When contacted, Dr Jalil Parkar under whose care Zarina was hospitalised, confirmed that Zarina was infected with the Coronavirus and said, “Zarina had pain in joints, bodyache, fatigue and fever. And, her oxygen level was low when we admitted her.”
Our call and text message to Zarina Wahab did not evoke a response. It is not known yet if Zarina has tested negative. Apparently, she has isolated herself well enough at home. Said Jalil Parkar, “She has gone home. She is much better now.”
Several people from various walks of life, including celebrities from Bollywood have been infected- Amitabh Bachchan, Abhishek Bachchan, Aishwarya Rai, Arjun Kapoor, Malaika Arora, Genelia D’souza, Zoa Morani, Kiran Kumar, Rachel White, Sajid, Purab Kohli, Kanika Kapoor, Rahul Mittra and maybe more whose names haven’t yet been reported.
Coronavirus is yet showing no signs of diminishing in India. In fact, our country seems to be peaking at this point and there is no guarantee that the number of cases will drop and another worry is, if so, then when. Hope the vaccine is fast round the corner.
