Malaika Arora and Arjun Kapoor, both of them have tested positive for Coronavirus. It was Malaika's sister, Amrita who had given the confirmation to ETimes about Malaika's test report. Now, Malaika Arora has issued a statement about the same and her sister, Amrita Arora has furiously bashed people who had shared Malaika's test report on social media. Scroll down to know more!
On September 7, 2020, Malaika Arora took to her IG handle and released a statement on being tested positive for Coronavirus. Her statement can be read as "Today I have tested positive for Coronavirus but I want to inform you all that I am feeling fine. I am asymptomatic and following all the required protocols and will be quarantined at home as instructed by my doctor and authorities. I request all of you to stay calm and safe. Thankyou for all your support. Much Love, Malaika Arora."
Malaika Arora's sister, Amrita Arora expressed her discomfort and bashed people who shared her reports on social media and asked for some sensitivity. She took to her IG stories and wrote, "Price of being a celebrity? New normal? In sickness but NOT in health?? Is this okay?? My sister's results have been posted on various Whatsapp groups, Facebooks and other mediums! While she was hoping and praying for a negative test and was also preparing herself to get better, this is what one has to deal with? How is this ok?????? What has happened to us humans... sad sad state of affairs!"
Amrita continued by asking the purpose of sharing Malaika's test report and said, "Was posting her result of any use to anyone????? She's a responsible citizen who would've declared it anyway!!!! What's the perverse pleasure of making it a discussion and guessing how and when she got it, some going to the extent of saying she deserves it with laughing emojis!! Why why why!!!!"
Amrita then raised solid questions asking how did Malaika's reports get out in the first place. Her note can be further read as "The question is how did her report get out in the first place... How was it ok to disregard a doc/patient confidentiality.. Let's just respect what's happening in the world and stop this ridiculous naming and think ur shaming syndrome! STOP!"

Everyone has been taking every possible precaution but I guess the pandemic is so severe that we have to deal with it come what may."
Malaika's beau, Arjun Kapoor has also tested positive for COVID-19 and he took to his IG handle to share the news. He wrote, “It is my duty to inform all of you that I have tested positive for coronavirus. I’m feeling ok and I’m asymptomatic. I have isolated myself at home under the advice of doctors and authorities and will be under home quarantine. I thank you all in advance for your support and I will keep you all updated about my health in the days to come. These are extraordinary and unprecedented times and I have faith that all of humanity will overcome this virus.” (Don't Miss: Mira Rajput Kapoor's Sister, Priya And Brother-In-Law, Vidhit Shower Her With Love On 26th Birthday)
