The year 2020 has turned into a scary dream, which doesn't seem to be ending soon. The entire world is fighting with the global health crisis, but no one knows when all this will be over. In December 2019, a new infectious respiratory disease had emerged in Wuhan, Hubei province, China and was named by the World Health Organization as COVID-19. Soon, the coronavirus had spread in the entire world and the lockdown was announced to curb its reach. However, the COVID-19 positive cases are increasing as the government has given relaxations on the lockdown.

Recently, I started showing minor symptoms of dry cough and a mild fever and I got myself tested for COVID-19. Unfortunately, the result came out positve and under the medical supervision of doctors and authorities, I have been advised to home quarantine."
Recently, in an interview with the Hindustan Times, Aftab opened up on how he had gotten tested positive for COVID-19. He shared that he was not prepared for this and was looking forward to be with his family. His shoot for Poison 2 was over and he was making all the preparations to fly back to London. He further added that it took him some time to accept the reality, "Initially when I got the result I was shocked. For the first few minutes I was disoriented because obviously I didn’t know how to react. There were a thousand thoughts in my head. My entire schedule was going to go for a toss. We hear, speak and read about but until it happens to you it’s still news. There are so many theories going around Covid about how fast it’s spreading, the mortality rate, the medication… The fact that the whole world is unclear about this is a little bit worrying. Slowly I composed myself and decided to deal with it." (Also Read: Mehr Hugs And Plays With BFF, Inaaya, Mom, Neha Dhupia Shares Pictures To Wish Inni Happy Birthday)
