After Mohena Kumari Singh. Ishqbaaz’s actress, Additii Gupta now tests positive for the vicious Coronavirus. The bubby, chirpy actress in an interaction with Telly Chakkar had confirmed about her testing positive for COVID-19. She had revealed that she was asymptomatic, and has locked herself in a room for over a week, away from her husband. For the unversed, Additi Gupta had tied the knot with her pilot-beau, Kabir Chopra on December 12, 2018.
In an interview with Pinkvilla, Additii Gupta talked about how she understood her symptoms and how she is recovering and managing her time by connecting with her friends and family via phone. Talking about how she noticed and understood her COVID-19 symptoms, she said, “I think I had cold but it was not really like a symptom, but post that I lost my smell and then I was pretty sure this is COVID symptom and then I confided myself in a room and then I got myself tested. It has been more than 10 days now since I have been in home quarantine.”
When asked if she was scared after knowing that she has tested positive, she revealed, “I guess when I lost my sense of smell, I was little scared but at that time, reacting to it was more important than getting scared. So, the first thing I did was to confine myself to a room separate from my husband and then, what happened was I wasn't sure about the symptoms earlier and was constantly monitoring my temperature but nothing was happening. So, I was confused about my symptom. Everyone in the family thought it might be a common cold or something but I was stressed and hence, got tested.”
Additii also shared how she is managing her time in self-isolation. She said, “I am just constantly in touch with friends over chat or call and I am also in touch with my husband over the call. I am just keeping myself busy and making sure to keep my spirits high. Of course, there are both good and bad days, it is not all hunky-dory. There are days when you have a headache, and you don't know what to do, but I just keep myself busy and talk with my friends who are my backbone right now. I think everyone can sail through it.”
The actress also shared a piece of advice for people, who are taking it lightly. She advised, “I want to tell people that though we understand that we need to venture out because the economy has to keep going, but you need to treat this seriously. Don't take it lightly. Everybody will react to the symptoms differently. You might feel that your parents will only show symptoms but it can be you too. Just look out for your symptoms, and it is not a great thing to have, you are confined to a room, and it is not easy. I think we just need to be careful and not venture out for the heck of it. Please guys, it is not a great thing for your body, just take care of yourself.” (Don't Miss: Trishala Dutt Reveals How Her Mental Health Suffered Post Death Of Boyfriend And How She's Coping Up)

It is not like I test negative and I will go out but I will take time and follow all norms.” (Recommended Read: Sushant Singh Rajput's Sister, Shweta Shares A Hugging Picture Of Her Daughter With Her 'Mamu')
